“very nice race well organized”
“So far no official result and announcement the winners and all . ”
“It would be nicer if it is one lap instead of two. ”
“The event at Meydan had a lower than expected standard when it came to the safety of the runner.
The two main concerns where:
- Bicycle traffic between runners.
- Lack of barriers between opposing sides.
“The directions from volunteers regarding second round for 10k was not clear and i ended up crossing the finish line after first round and had to turn back.
“Need more improvements, specially timing need to start earlier ”
“it was a nice experience ”
“They could have given the awards over there itself”
“people were running both ways and it was effecting the running pace ”
“Should have started a bit earlier than 7 am. ”
“Amazing run, weather was perfect and track was not that difficult ”
“Well organized event with a nice snack at the end.”
“it was fantastic race of the opening season and very well organized.
Well control regarding social distancing as well as other element of the events.
There was enough refreshments for the runners.
Thanks Team Sports UAE and Dubai Sports Council to make it happen.”
“It was fun. I enjoyed the event. This was my 3rd time in Meydan Run. Keep it up, and best of luck as always.
Just a suggestion for future races, it would be appreciated if freebies are to be given freely, like muffins, coffee, and other drinks. It's just sitting there in the table and they don't give/share to runners even they knew it will be disposed eventually when not consumed. It's a waste. They must have have been give to us instead of throwing it out. Thank you.”
“Well organised with social distancing in place.”
“some concern with the very large corporate group not keeping sufficient distancing during the run. Also, participants not exiting venue soon after finishing their race. But in all very well organised.”
“Refreshments were not great - no alternative for gluten free people. ”
“Very well organized, esp COVID related measures”
“Especially given the challenges of maintaining social distance while keeping things light and fun, I thought they did an excellent job of balancing the two! Would definitely do this race again, hopefully next time in a COVID-free world. ”
“اتطلع الى المزيد من السباقات ”
“Hope to smash it next time ”
“race should start earlier because of the heat”
“You should have started a bit earlier when the weather is a bit cooler”
“Nobody checked my temperature : )”
“Simply it was awesome to me and it was my first race in Uae during 10 years ”
“Too many people congregating before the start of the race in groups, risk of spreading virus.”
“It was expensive and kilometers were more”
“It's was well organised, I am truly enjoyed it”
“It was well organized, but it's better to start earlier. Also it's disappointed that same medal after long time of waiting for outside run. ”
“Had total confidence with the organizers handling the covid-19 situation and caring about the safety of all runners. Great run! Thank you :)”
“Race vibes was very normal maybe some music also the the 5km loope had absulty no views on greenery and the start and finish line under the bridge wasn't the best as most of the pictures of the runner were under the bridge.Would think the other side where the booths are and pocari stands was better aesthetically for pics.”
“more social distancing and avoid crowding”
“In this COVID time, running route should be single loop for 10km run. This will avoid crowd
Not happy with loop running ”
“Very well organised for social distancing and safety. Loved it. So nice to be doing “live” races again!!! ”
“Why, because during the run, bicycle was also part's of this, especially for the first peoples crossing the arrival line.
For the rest it was perfect.”
“Excellent organized event ???well prepared for the covid 19 ”
“You need to do a podium ceremony alliened with Covid-19 rules: keep distance, wearing the mask...”
“The section for lining up on the start line could have been longer - as the official area started just at the level where the people were coming in the village area, you ended up with people close together just outside, which defeated a little the main purpose of what was otherwise a very well organised start in the current circumstances. Everything else was great.”
“There are better locations in Dubai ”
“The running location was very normal, You can choose more interesting trucks in the future, but thank you for all the efforts.”
“As per the organizing, everything was perfect.. it’s just the time when the race started was not perfect
It is better to start runs earlier as the sun gets really hot and strong which affects the efforts”
“The running route was really boring, at least you could have made it a loop for change of scenery”
“Great organization, good track - nice to back racing again ”
“perfect first experience, really enjoyed and motivated for up coming runs”
Social distance Policy was great
“Very well organised amidst the big Virus. Everyone seemed to be super happy to be out and running again!!”
“Very well organised! Especially with the current situation; great communication regarding safety! ”
“Not well marked . 5k had extra 200mts which is bad.
Refreshments, package delivery and parking was gooD ”
“Well organised and professional in all key aspects.”
Complying with precautionary measures ”
“There was no bag drop, cyclists on the running track and a car in the middle of the track trying to reverse at one stage.
But good atmosphere, clean toilet and nice medal.”
“It was well organized and good experience.”
“For the future events it should have an earlier start as it was quite hot yesterday morning plus no shade on the route at all. Starting after 7am is to late. Most runners will start their Friday morning runs at 5:30am or 6am.
Please consider the first race to start at 6:30am or earlier if possible.
Apart from that it was very well organized. ”
“Great race, just started too late. It was very hot towards the end”
“It was great experience but the road was little hard”
“The organisation was excellent and I felt the run went very smoothly. The 5k was slightly longer than 5k though”
“It was very well organised, considering the circumstances, but it started way too late, it is already too hot at 7. ”
“Great job in the circumstances. Effective and efficient. Maintained balance between safety and racing well. Course was long.”
“The start was chaos, people pushing into the clearly formed queue. Why were there not separate provisions for the elite/good runners to get them off together? Some people in the first wave were walking at 3km!”
Just try to start earlier ”
“Well organized event. And it was a fun morning run/race .”
“it was a good experience ”
