I would take part again
8.6 Definitely one of the best organized running event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Really had a great time running this event. The monorail trip with a great view of The Palm Jumeirah was an added treat! Not to mention the great view of the water, the Burj Al Arab and the Dubai Marina Skyline along the course. A great event indeed. Super-impressed with the speedy results posting on line. If only the results were available at the finish line, I could have known that I placed third in my age group and had waited for the awarding. As I had a flight to catch, I decided to leave.”

10.0 Great event for the whole family! Michelle Lindqvist · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“This is a great event for the whole family to come down and do. With 1km/3km/5km and 10km options there really is something for everyone. I did it together with my friends and its a good mix of people doing it for fun vs. getting a personal best! ”

8.2 An excellent experience. · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“It was a great feeling and value for money.”

6.8 Wonderful views but bag collection problematic · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“It took me 2 goes to collect the race bag - on my first try I tried to call the office but it was closed and although there was a message saying to call one for the organizer's mobiles no number was given for the mobile! I only found the collection point as another participant was also lost and we found it together! I know the construction hindered collection - maybe collection on race day would be better! I found the organisers very helpful and very sympathetic to my plight!”

7.5 Good organization · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Kindly organize the registration process at 2 places in the city so that we don't have to travel to the remote corner of the place for the process. ”

8.4 Nice morning run Andrea Wilkins · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Enjoyed the run, well organized and not too busy during the run. Km markers were set out wrongly but other than that a good event. Would be nice to maybe see paper water cups at the water stations, bit more effort than plastic but much more environmentally friendly. ”

8.4 Great event, really enjoyed it Graham Hackshaw · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I thought almost everything about the event was really good and well organised, transport in particular to a difficult location was a high point, very easy and convenient. Communication has been great up to the event. The only drawback for me is that I left as soon as the event was over and I was hoping to be able find the results on line. So far, six hours later I can’t find any results or even any indication of where or when they will be posted. Not the end of the world but disappointing a bit”
