“Thanks. Great event though results and Pictures were late”
“It would have been lovely if there had been some prices for the older age categories!”
The stretching session at the end was a great plus!”
“If there are podium for kids , it was better.”
“Great event and thoroughly enjoyable.”
“I really enjoyed this event..”
“I really enjoyed this event..”
“Lovely course, scenic and enjoyable.
However the narrow course, with folk not adhering to the keep right, did lead to a bit of traffic. I do however wish the slower runners/walkers would sensibly start at the back instead of all surging to the front...it's like a dodgems trying to pass folk ;-) ”
“Had a lot of fun, volunteers are amazing”
“It was really very nice event for family & runners . we enjoyed and had lot of fun with our friends and family. ”
“It was so perfect in very nice place ….. thank you so much ”
“Distance, water points well organized ”
“ was not clearly marked and many ran 5.5Km”
“Great event but please have somewhere to leave belongings.”
“Thank you so much for this beautiful event.
I’m looking forward to participate again. ”
“A great event - beautiful course and top notch organisation.”
“The 5k runners ran more than 5k. We ran approx 500m further as we all turned where the 10k runners turn down at yas beach end rather than where we should have. It wasn’t clearly marked possibly. ”
“No podium for 1km. Too bad.”
“Race bib pick up was a mess, no age groups and no podium for 1km. Poor children, they were so disappointed. Location was crowded with non runners. All in all messy organization.”
“Need better warm up music at the start line.”
“There was no podium for 1km race and we were not told before. How a race will have no award ceremony...no need for gifts or medals just call the winners out. That's the minimum. We also didn't get to know how much money was raised for reach organization. I wouldn't participate again. All kids were frustrated and the race course was very busy with non racers. Race bib collection was also a big mess, nobody knew anything. ”
“Awesome location and excellent event organisation
“amazing run and great organization ”
“مشاهدة المصورين باعداد هائلة في السباق ولاكن التصوير كان من كاميرة النهاية فقط وهذه من سلبيات السباق ”
“Very good organisation, easy registration but the best part was the location. Yas bay waterfront should be used more often now it’s open ”
“Great event , lovely location, we liked the T-shirt and the medals. I found the runner traffic a bit confusing and not controlled well.. example no barrier to separate runners going opposite directions and most stretches had no staff to direct people to stay on one side or the other. Only the turns were staffed. I felt the event lacked a bit in terms of atmosphere, but I can’t exactly put that in words. I’m still rating it high , because overall we had a great time and would do it again”
“Thanks for your effort. I”
“Thanks for the event.
Results were late to be published and until now ( Sunday 11 am Pictures are not available on the link you sent”
“i did not receive my results after the run (5121)”
“Nice venue. I appreciate the 7am start as early is better. I wish there were age group prizes. Few times I had to slow down due to crowding, there was some path crossing with 3km U turn. Awaiting photos.”
“On the whole, very well organised. A few issues with runners of the shorter distances aimlessly wandering into the path of the 10km runners on the second lap which was a little frustrating. And the photos have not been uploaded more than 24 hours on. Other than, it was a positive experience and I enjoyed the run.”
“Very well organized! good job”
“Course signage wasn't enough. Arrows and conning ”
“It was a fun and unforgettable reaching the last mile running experience. Kudos to all the volunteers and organizers. ??♥️”
“It was a great run but a shame the route changed making it 5.4km and not a 5k. Not that I was going for an amazing time but just trying to improve my own 5k consistently.
Looking at the route map it is clear that we were sent on a different run.
I understand it was a narrow pathway which is why this may have happened but just a shame all times / splits aren’t accurate for a 5k.
However, lovely way to spend the morning!! ”
“Organisation was good. Lots of relevant info.
Course was ok- think the turn near the Point was a bit tight and congested, a larger turning area and not near the sprinklers!!
Big delay between finishing and medal ceremony…
However, it was great to see many different race lengths allowing many people to participate- at all abilities.
A nice course by the waterfront…,
“It was a well organized race.”
“I would have liked more atmosphere eg people cheering and music. Also a sign every 1 km to help keep focused. Lastly I did not see the link for the kids race.
Overall it was a lovely location. Thank you ”
“I registered for 5 k track was 5.4k place is good but track wasn’t clear ”
“Thank you for the efforts and new places ”
“The event was great, good work all the volunteers,
If uploading the photos of event can make a bit earlier, at least the same day, that would be great.”
“if there are podium for kids, it was better.”
“Everything was good the view amazing but I hope if I wish all started together (10k, 5k,3k,1k)
Its need more organized ”
“Very good track, timing and medal. I would give it 10 out of 10 but one negative thing was, doing the second lap we merged with the 5k runners as they were standing at the start line and it made me confused where to go and almost slowed down but lucky the organizers manadged to guide us to the correct path quick. ”
“The course was over 5km , a race official directed the participants the wrong direction and the race was about 5.42km ”
“It was awesome and great event, we had enjoyed.
Also great to reach those people who suffered from neglected disease so we can help and support them.”
“Age category prize giving. Unfair that children and older people need to compete with youngsters. How do you motivate the different age groups from reaching their maximum potential. ”
“We’ll organised and a Fantastic venue. Loved the cool down stretches afterwards ”
“Thank you for a wonderful experience and race. ”
“Excellent Track and well organized .. oh yes thanks for the lovely Tshirt ”
“Beautiful venue and good organization and fair price..”
“Didn’t know where to collect bib or the starting time of the race ”
“It was a very well organized event ”
“Well oraganised. Keep it up”
“Nice location but less direction for starting line ”
“There was nobody at the Finish Line to give out the medals so you had to collect them yourself. It appeared that nobody really cared enough to be there. Furthermore, while I was on the second lap some men told me to run under the banner but then another person told me to run around it, which was irritating because it messed up my rhythm.”
“Great location,amazing event, well organized.”
“Organisation was great, timing was perfect. Only the ground was very hard to run into it long distances. I liked too much the stretching session after the run.”
“Location is very good, but unprofessional organizing..
Late start, not proper guidelines on track, same medal for all ages, no cheer up during the run, not even in the starting and finishing point”
“Well organized. However, the t-shirt sizes were ridiculous. I were 2XL when I buy running tees at Nike or UA. The 2XL you gave me was comparatively a L, if at all. With that exception, it was a good run.”
“Where are the photos from the race?
“Course signage was really poor, I had to double back on myself at one point because the arrow was pointing one way but there was nothing and no one telling us people doing second lap to ignore it and carry on past the tunnel . Also as soon as people finished they were walking all over the track not paying attention, getting in the way. Nice location, needs some more planning before the next one. ”
“Very well organized. The only drawback is the photos are still not online.”
“The event wasn’t organized properly. 5k runners ended going the wrong way and running an extra 200 meters. No age group medals only overall which is extremely unfair to older runners.”
“Delay start time for other races as it was too busy in parts on certain places on track ”
