“It was a good experience ”
“Didn’t get my award ? yet ”
“It stated a 96 hour PCR was necessary but entry was just green pass for everyone else attending normal Train Yas nights. It said the event was to start at 6.15 however you were actually able to turn up at any time after 6.15 and do the timed lap. I got one would have left it later if I knew this, it was still actually really hot at 6.15. The Water was warm at both water stations. finally, I wasn’t even sent the result or where I came.”
“Very good race route. Will organise. Only they water on water station was hot.”
“Not happy at all with the way it was organized. Warm water in cups. No water bottles. No medal”
HOT water was provided at 33C race!
No proper communication after race for results.. photos .. etc
One camera only at start finish ..
Please pay attention next time
“Runners in such hot weather for such distance the least to expect is cold water.
No medals at the finish line!
Where is the awards for top 3 in age category.
Please provide better organisation next time or hand it to GMS ”

“The steps to get in are not clear, I had to go to que twice because i have to register for train yas entry.
Second, the time intook wasn’t sent to me yet, usually it come directly ”
“تنظيم لا يليق باسم مجلس ابوظبي الرياضي
حتى الماي الي يقدم للمتسابقين حار
الفواكه حاره جداً

“SOO WORST, WHY YOU IN FORSCE US REGIEST IN YAS APPLICATION

“Very well organised event, thanks ! ”
“It was really a nice experience to run on a race track that you only see on TV”
“Nice experience to have the chance to run on a Racetrack you can only see normally at the TV.
“It was a Paid Event and Runner had liberty to Run anytime between 6 to 9 PM. The Runners who started after 7 or 7.30 and when they finished their Run, there were No Banana in the refreshments. The water stations were properly manned but the Water was not cold. Photographers were available only at Start/ Finish time and they looked tired after some time.
Rest of the things were good.”
“It's awesome specialy for first timer like me :)”
“That was a good organization. Thank for everyone. ”
“The email did not specify the QR code we needed to show at the entrance. After having picked the bib, we returned the phones to the car thinking that we were done with the phones, to find out we still needed them to show the QR code. Once passed the QR code checks, we realised that we have to keep our phones for the whole run.”
“It was sooo hot but sooo fun!!”
“ماحصلنا ميداليات مفروض تخبرونا من البدايه ”
“Overall average. somewhere unexpected things happened first time, at the finishing point there was no one present to guide about the finish point, timing, finisher medal. ”
“Lovely event. Just wish the water was cold and it rubbed me the wrong way that people were cheating with short cuts. Why participate if you want to cheat. ”
“It would be nice to have a dedicated proper lane for runner / walker. Most of the time during the course of the run, we have to use the small space near the fences so that we will not be on the road used by cyclist.
Also, we are looking for finisher medal but none was provided.
Overall, it was nice. I appreciate the fruits & pocari water given at the finish line.”
“Great event. However there was no people in the later runs of the day to pace yourself a bit ”
“It was good I did have good time ”
“We'd love if we had certificates and medal on the running day, also would appreciate if there was changing rooms and get the participants pack one day ahead. Thank you.”
“ “unprofessional” and “disorganized”
I regret the attending ”
“The event itself was good however the signing in was problematic as the staff were confused regarding the procedures. ”
“Signage / demarcation at Registration area could be better, more clear. ”
“It is the worst race event I ever attended. ! there was no race first of all,. first we needed to subscribe to YAS which was not stated in directions in email. then there was no real race which I thought no problem but then the water giving to us during the run was so hot. it was given from water tank . when i reached there was no medal. though we paid usual price that we get medals with. and after I left I found people taking pictures of Medals! so unfair that some got and some didn't .”
“Thank you Abu Dhabi for providing a well organised and happy event on international running day in the most glorious surroundings. Big thank you to all volunteers. I also have a beautiful shirt to wear that will remind me of the wonderful experience I had for a long time to come.”
“There were no clear way off the running track, I start from the start point I made a mistake turn right after 200 meters the security told me I have to go back I should turn left ”
“Thanks for the best moments ”
“We didn't get our medals ”
“Water points were not good- what about medals?”
“double registration .. and run on little side of the road , would be better if we have half it sharing with cycling group. ”
“Excellent customer care. Thank you. ”
“Un organised event. The weather is hot and they provide hot water for the runners. Only a photographer was in the finish line to take photos without any guidance from the event organiser. No medals at the finish line. For me, I'll read the details next time to assure it won't happen again ”
“Nice but no ? cold water available, where are the results of the race ? Thanks ”
“Some people use shortcut.
No cold water”
“Good efforts but there are a lot of mistakes you should avoid later
Example: no save boxes available
No proper welcome
Shirt doesn’t have any information related to our organization which you had asked for it not to be saved in your database and it should be shown for such event to encourage people and any other entities to refer their people ”
“Thank you very much. Great event.”
