“Well organised event, great atmosphere. Only recommendation - to have someone at midpoint (for 10k race) to guide runners. ”
“This was a great experience! A few points to make it even better next year - a marshall should be stationed at the half way point of the 10k - lots of people ran too far. Need a few more marshalls and time check points generally - too many people cutting corners in a major way! Not sure why I got a triathlon t-shirt afterwards. Were there no RAK trail run ones ?? ”
“There wasn't anybody at the halfway point for the 10km so I ran too far”
“it was just great experience!”
“Good course, well organised. It would have been great to have some covid friendly food (bananas or bars or something) at one of the water stations mid 21k. Crazy that the event ambulance had no antiseptic!”
“No marshals at the stands where it was really needed. It was not clear when the u turn for the 10 k was and nobody to ask. There was also no marked km. At every kilometre in any other runs it is always marked out. The only good thing was the music and vibe and medal and orange juice.”
“Hard and amazing challenge. Totally recommend it ”
Amazing race... Venue, Marshall's, organization, all support necessary was there!! 5*
Enjoyed a lot the run and I hope I can repeat again next year..
Didnt like so much the lack of effort of (few) runners to respect the rules and the environment!!
it was quite easy for some runners to do shortcuts without being controlled
Also Runners who throw garbage along the track should be disqualified!! ”
“Great organisation, enough parking space, good facilities, simple set up respectful of social distancing and accessible yet challenging course (did the 21k). Had a great morning with you guys! ”
“Was a great event and good fun”
“Was okay, team was trying to maintaining social distance ”
“It would be great to add milestones indicating the number kilometers achieved so far. 1km then 2km then 3km..etc. this would have allowed us to pace ourselves and out efforts more efficiently. Otherwise it was awesome ”
“Great location. Enjoyed the run, however:
The half-marathon itinerary could have been better: running in circles in the same spot twice is really not necessary in the vastness of the Jabel Jais area. I understand it's easier to organize, but that makes the event less attractive.
Also, there were very few chip time measuring stations, and I saw multiple people running shortcuts.
The pictures are nice but unfortunately very low definition. It would be great to get the high-def copies!!!
“A choice of woman or man t-shirt would have been much much appreciated. Instead of white or black Colours choice ..... ”
“Amazing event. Very well organized. Only suggestion is it would have been good to have some energy food for the 21km event at say the 15km point.”
“No Marshall at the 10k half way point.
More toilets needed.
Great route and event though!”
“The crew were really helpful and friendly, social distancing felt very safe and I had a pre-race query which was answered very quickly and helpfully. A really good event and would recommend!”
“Championship was excellent and good organization ”
“Great organization. Please have female t-shirts!!!”
“A very well organised race. Marshals everywhere to ensure you don’t go the wrong way. Enjoyed racing outside of Dubai and in the mountains of RAK. Would definitely do this again. ”
“Start on time please
“I lost my way because of insufficient direction/ signage”
