“Great views, very organized, great atmosphere. Enjoyed the race.”
“Run was fun but we had to wait a long time the price giving ceremony”
“We were disappointed thatv the water no winners medals for the 1k race. Our 5 year old waited over 2 hours after her race in the cold rain only to find that there was no medal for finishing second. It should have been mentioned on the event info page for this race. ”
“it was an amazing run under the rain”
“It was just super organised
Volunteers were super nice and did a good job directing ”
“اول مرة اشارك في ماراثون. كان وايد جميل ، والتنظيم كان ممتاز”
“Organization was great, the tract was difficult as a lot of uphill and down hill which is a bit dangerous ”
“the time wasn't the same as what I have in my watch ”
“it was just an ordinary event. ”
“Can’t hear the awards announcement because of the Audio system failure!
Result are not live. Even 1hour after the race, the result was not posted!
The route is not good for a running race due to some hazard steps. Eventhough there are markings, please know that this is a race and SOME runners may not notice it. I almost tripped at one point.
The only good thing is the helpful and energetic volunteers showing us the way on every turns.
“The event was well-organized and the volunteers were amazing as always.
2 things that can be improved:
1-safety marks on the race track specially for steep turns or small steps that can easily be missed and would result to injury.
2-the live results was very more delayed.”
“The organization was last minute and it’s too short. 2 or 3 days before will be better. The sound of the microphone was terrible. It wasn’t possible to stay. ”
“More modest clothing for men ..”
“The track was annoying:
Too much ups and downs, it was slippery and the stairs was annoying also plus we didn't get to know the track before the race I didn't know where to go and it was surprising all the way..
And the most hateful thing is the smell of the gasoline from one of boats I couldn't breathe for a while......”
“Excellent organization and coordination. Look forward to more such events ”

It should be more flexible timing to collect.”
“The rout was little hard need explain clear before start …..nice to race but I didn’t like the rout ”

Good timing to start

“I’m interested and nice I’m and my family enjoyed ”
“exceptional organization loved the venue, route map ahead of time would’ve been nice, beautiful medals. See you at the Louvre ”

bib 5168, bib 5169 and bib 5167”
“Everything great. Only the line for bib pick up was very long”
“I was really upset about the medal distribution and how they give a medal for overall performance but don’t even place you in your age group..One can not compete at 50 with 20 years old people .i prefer to have my gold medal for my age group than having 2nd or third place overall. Really frustrating ”

Missing Chip time”
“I finished race proper way as my team mates and friends. My bib was in place too. Still result showing I did complete only 8k not 10k. My watch says I did 10.4k, But their system says DNF”
“Well organized but I didn’t like the track much ”
“Going up and down busted our knees. That was the only downside for me. Besides, alongside the water and fruits at the end, there should’ve, at least, have another sport drink to make up for the loss of fluids in the body.”
“I’m very grateful to attend such wonderful event , thank you so much ”
“Really great run! The venue was amazing. Very well organized.”

“It is a lovely idea to organize runs around the city iconic venues.
We look forward for more such events.
The organizing team and volunteers did a good job and the rain God came out in full support.
Fantastic idea. to organize the run at Lourve.
Next stop Emirates Palace :)
“It was a lovely run and well-organized in terms of the route. The medals were beautiful. What could be done better next time is send the map ahead of time (to mentally prepare for the course as it was challenging), have tshirts and announce the women’s winners first (ladies first is important). Please do have more races this season. ”
