“good arrangements with lots of fun”
“Preparation are well & Good
Registration mistakes are corrected immediately before the run
All the administration related things are good
But while coming to race, it become clumsy (No space to run). As this race results will come based on the chip time, no need to release all 200 peoples at a same time. Can be released 10/15 at a same time, so that space will be there for runner.
Also unregistered parents are running along with childrens, it makes the crowd even worst while running. ”
“Thank you very much . It was a nice activity”

“It was fantastically and I wish to do it 2 time at winter session at least ”
“You did a great job on to the event. There are more volunteers to facilitate the program and the runners. Job well done! ”
“Congratulations to the team and thsnk you for making the community well fun filled place ”
“Very nice event. Big thanks for the organizer. Every year should be arranged it. ”
Points for improvement:
1. Fruits and water should be distributed properly and should be pack so that the runner will not take long to get it.
2. Roads that will be used in the marathon that will be closed should be announce 2 or 3 days prior to the event so that other motorist and runner will be fully aware to get to the event.
But overall rating. The event was a fun experience.”

“Gifts were not there for kidsssss”
“I feel, there should have been water available before and after the race. I think signage to parking and which roads would be closed would help people getting through town to the start line.and signage in general for parking. Otherwise the event was nice. ”
“Fun event! Could've been better if started on time. ”
“Thank you for organizing such an amazing event in Al Dhannah city.
Due to the very hot and humid weather the Awards Ceremony should take place in a shaded area for the safety of all.
Appropriate t-shirts sizes to be distributed, especially to children, not to end up with an XL one.
Best of luck with the future events!”
“The event was poorly managed at the finish line where I almost lost my daughter due to overcrowding. Horrible experience.”

“1. 1km category there is kids fall down and luckily no accidents happen.
2. Microphone/speakers not function well and we not hear what the MC told/inform.
3. Foods/drinks station after finishing line can move a bit front otherwise too much crowds and clashing between runners and others.
5.overall it’s a very good event and there is room of improvement for next event. Thank you ADNOC.
“The race was enjoyable and mostly well organized. Two things come to mind that were disappointing - There were no kids sizes available. My 4yo and 6yo kids got size adult mediums. Even the adult sizes were not properly organized. There were no size smalls available.
The other disappointing part was that there were no prizes for the winners of each race. Of course this is not expected but it would have been appreciated especially after the ones that were given last year. ”
“Next event perhaps you can consider with aerobics for all type of age's.”
“Excellent community activity, well organized ”
“It's was awesome the atmosphere of unity ? ”
“Registering my children using my email address resulted in me having 3 packs with my name on, even though I used their names and EIds. This was a hassle.
There were no children’s sized T-shirts.
No notice to town members of road closures (unless they were signed up for race) I realise this is on the town but it’s part of our experience. Lots of workers stuck in the roads unfortunately. Also a shame that adnoc did not donate prizes on this occasion, last years prizes attracted runners this yr”
“Good experienced and happy while we ran. ”
“Thank you ever so much to have been so organized and supportive. You folks are a blessing. Thank you again for the wonderful opportunity you guys provided us all at RUWAIS . You’ve made all of them aware of their fitness potentials and have paved way for a better tomorrow . Much love and god bless ”
“On time and very good for manage the event ”
“First time I am participated in this event..I’m so happy and feel proud for my self ..excellent co ordination ??”
“I was disappointed as twice I went to Almazaya booth 12:00pm &7pm and was told that I did not register. Those at the stand did not make any effort to go out of the box to assist me with this issue. A gentleman( Ghassan) was very helpful to have given me his own number , but with no chip. I wanted to run 10km. Last night on the email sent ntment i saw that my name was actually on the 10 km list with number 8083 and the very last. I was not the last and was ahead of alot and ran 10km in 70mi ”
“It was an Amazing Race ? thanks to Adnoc ”
“I want you to fix everything to fit for everyone like t-shirts it wasnt fit for everyone its not good and for example also ending time reward medal it was too much late , overall section some company give rewards for this section ”
“Some quick prizes for the position holders will motivate runners.”
“Gets better every year. Keep going!!!”
“Great initiative. This should continue. Also, Run only ladies will encourage many because of cultural value. Many didn’t participate because of running men and women together.”
“Thank you for organizing this such kind of event and it was so great experience.”
“The organization was done very well, and everyone was very accommodating. ”
