“Poorly organized event - 1.Poorly organized event with an inconsistent supply of hydration at finishing line - shockingly even water was finished by the time 80th out of 120+participant was in.
2.No communication on shuttle back to hotel
3.Extremely delayed (45 min) start due to a dependency on bus yet reason remain unknown.
Organizers themselves looked not ready for the event
Overall only good part was the run and the course.”
“Great event - Great course. Yes there was a delay in the start but this seemed more down to police instruction to clear the road than the organisers fault. Overall you can see the organisers made an effort and did a great job. After the delay the race went very smoothly and generated a great atmosphere. More than happy with the towel and key ring that will actually be used rather than another medal that will be thrown in a drawer never to be seen again. ”
“DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY, GO RUN BY YOURSELF. - Arrived at the Green mubazarah at sharp 5am, parked the car, saw other runners getting warmed up, then when i went to collect the bib number, there was no registration counter yet, they were still setting up the table, we went to start line at 5.55am and waited till 6.40am for the run to start, then we ran up water station was there, sadly slow runners dint get water, after 2hrs run reached top, expecting to receive medal, there was no medal, no banana, disappointing guys.”
“Great challenge but why the wait - Beautiful to have support up this iconic hill.
But the 45 minute wait meant we were running in the sun, and no water at the 10km station tbh could have been serious
No problem that we didnt get a key ring, but next time.please ensure water is there whole people are still running
But still ready to.do it again next year :)”
“Beautiful & challenging course, weakly organized. - Loved the course - very challenging. But like others, was frustrated with waiting 45min to start; disinterested individuals manning water tables; getting to the top and being handed a keyring and towel (not what was advertised).”
“One of the worst events ever! - Disorganized, late start , no transportation as promised or medals and even we couldn't have breakfast nothing was organised not worth the money but worth to try this challenge by urself or with friends maybe, anyhow coach Simba was not responsible enough to organise this event didn't take safety of runners seriously . Just disappointed ”
“Lovely course - Very poorly organised. 45 min delay. No water at water station for slowest runners. No ambulance care after 9am. No bus to take lay participants back to hotel. Dangerous. Flimsy key ring advertised before hand as a medal. Wonderful breakfast. Supportive runners. Lots of kind volunteers. ”
