“Love the race, the last 2km was brutal with all that climbing ”
“very great race, beautiful landscape”
“Great race & event. A feedback points though - the volunteers giving out the race numbers were very disorganised and actually rude - the stations should have been colour coded as per race distance and then able to control their stations better. The chaos was very stressful and added an unwelcomed element to the pre-race nerves. They seemed to think we already knew our race numbers = we did not. Next time please make sure this is corrected = thank youuuu”
“Run was very nice, I haven't received yet the Result & Picture which usually your team send in my email, can you please send the result & picture link in this email id " [email protected]" ”

“Shawka Hump Race is a very well organized event. The runner's guide is very thorough, runner safety is well-considered, routes are well marked, generous prizes, and there are friendly Marshalls at the stations which are well-stocked with plenty of water and treats. Most importantly, the community gets to enjoy the views of a gorgeous mountain no matter which distance they choose to run! I recommend this race to anyone who is fortunate to travel to Dubai, it is a top trail run in UAE. ”

“Well organized. Interesting terrain. Slightly busy with walkers in some parts.”
“Hope they can provide electrolyte water at check point in the near future. ”
“The organization of the event was a it flawed. Not enough marshals on the route to guide you , especially towards the end.
At the finish line things were a bit messy.
We needed to look for our medals and were given wrong one (50k) at first. One organizer said and all medals were the same until we pointed out the 50k engraving. Definitely not the most informed either. ”
“Provide temporary camping facility as part of the race options
Race prizes should be better ”

“Parking needed to be better organized. we had a smaller sedan and it was not easy to get around all the rocks. We were told it was paved but there were huge dips and rocks in parking area. Would have been nice if they had parking area for smaller cars and another for trucks and off-road vehicles. Other than that the event was wonderful! Staff was great and trail markings were done very well. ”
