“- would like to understand how much km to the end
- was not sure if there would be medals at the end or not, so more info there would be useful
- great event ;)”
“I was hoping to experience more obstacles for the 10km”
“It was not really challenging as i expected , i used to go to same course in Egypt and there was a lot of challenging obstruct where really fun , but in Riyadh it was long enough but without any challenging obstructs”
“I'm so happy to enjoy and great experience the race next time I will do it again thank you very much. ”
“Add more visible markers, no finisher medal? and please do this event again here in riyadh.. thank you.”
“It was my first experience and I really enjoy ! will participate again for sure ”
“I enjoyed the race a lot, but I found it lacking in many ways.
Obstacles were supposed to be the centerpiece, but weren't tough nor muddy, I found them underwhelming, lacking diversity, too few and far between, most were just crawling.
The race's difficulty was unnecessarily shifted to the trail, which was the hardest overall due to the soft sand, it's a massive energy siphon, I would've loved that as a feature, rather than 80% of the race.
I suggest a condensed race, 3-5k with 20+ obstacles. ”
“I registered earlier than my friends
Some of them paid at the event site and they paid one third what I paid?!?!
And I didn’t even got a medal ?!
What i liked there was the obstacles
But check in and waiting and parking was not well organized.. ”
“no free drink no medals, not even a snake”
“كان كل شي رائع والأجواء حماسية، بس انتقادي الوحيد عدم وجود أي ميداليات او تكريم او حتى تعليق بالمايكروفون للمتسابقين الصغار.. كان انجازهم عالصامت ”
“Organizers dont know about anything regarding the lockers and changing rooms, the race was good but mostly only running ”
“I would suggest to make the track more clear and and add more water stations ”
“I really enjoyed it. All good!”
“It is great first experience definitely will do it again”
“The organisation was not good.
The water run out of the men toilets.
The women toilet seats were broken.
The guide was sent too late.
The food available was too limited. One place run out of food. The other was disappointingly vegetarian.
The obstacles were very few. ”
“Great experience and great staff”
“First, the organizer should notify us about the medals and me and my friends are upset because of this.
Please contact us and give us the medals as it will be a sweet memory
“Well organized and great experience ”
“If there is meddles is better ”
“The obstacles weren’t as challenging as the European ones. No medals were given either ”
“Great event, was a lot of fun. Needed some distance markers around the course to give an understanding of the distance traveled/remaining.
First time I've done something remotely close to this, and really enjoyed it. Will do it again in the future! Thanks”
“The event was well organized and the trail was great but i hated that there is no medals for finishers. It was only available for the 1st 3 rankings and not all finishers like any other marathons/races/challenges. I did spartan and it was amazing. My only motivation for these events is the medal as i collect them and we dont have enough races per year here in saudi”
“I wished opsticlse were harder. Other than that it was great ”
“More photographers would have been cool!”
“There are so many things to improve! ”
“The flags on trail were not very clear”
“All is good all is fine i enjoyed the event and thanks a lot for the organization to take care of us . I lost 2 time during the race, but the organizers by his car he show me to the correct way only I didn’t like the price i paid 400 s.r for the ticket and others paid only 160 some paid 39 why it’s to much and no refund for me
The boss said to me to send email for Olivia to return my money .Thank you a lot it was great event but need people I couldn’t see any girls only me and 2 girls .
“It was a great experience and adventure but I have 2 points need your consideration 1- the toilets are dirty without and tissue and soap!!! No changing room 2- it good to offer some snack included in the race fees (ex sandwich and juice) ”
“Registration process was terrible. Obstacles were silly. Guides had little information about routes.”
“Great day out, will do it again.”
“Thank you for the team work”
“Organizers needed training, some where not professional… ThoughMudder should consider handing out medals even for the 5k finishers and timing them, as it didn't make sense not to time them. ”
“Well done Riyadh! You’ve got your first Tough Mudder. It’s historic. I enjoyed it immensely. Next year just make it bigger, better and more challenging!”
“Would have liked more info on the obstacles before the event. And more food at the event after the event. Otherwise fantastic event. Was great fun. Thanks so much. ”
“What an awesome experience! Well organised, great fun, thebonly negative was that we paid 330 SAR per person then the price was reduced to 120SAR later.”
“Loved the presenters and the setup. Could be more challenging and exciting hurdles. But overall it was a great event for all ages and youth. The family and kids loved it.”
“Brilliant Vibe, great Atmosphere just wish the obstacles were a bit more maybe change from 20 to 30.”
“Checkpoint stewards gave wrong directions or were not even present.
I was leading with 2 minutes over the second and because of the lack of knowledge about the circuit from the stewards my run got short and I was redirected to the finish line with only 5k run done.
No follow up done by organizer.”
“there was no trash bins during the trail so you find empty bottles every where.
the obstacles were way easier than what we see in the US.
the marks that lead the trail destroyed during the race and in 2 points i could easily get lost if i did not see players from long distance so i went to them and discovered that i took a shortcut and skipped 2 obstacles.
“Awesome, fantastic, well organised, when will you be back? ”
“Great location and weather. The registration counter needs to improve. Fun event and course.”
“A like it for the 1st time ”
“Those things could improve:
1. Better communication pre-event, clarifying the course details, route and obstacles
2. We asked Some volunteers some basic questions of the race, most didn’t know what to answer
3. Guide marks in the course can be clarified better most racers went off track sometimes
4. Some obstacles were there
But overall a very good first event and an excellent course”
“It was good for the first Tough Mudder in Riyadh, however, it was not as good as the Tough Mudder I did in Texas a few years ago for 3 reasons:
1. There was sand, and water, but no mud. Please figure out how to get mud next time.
2. The 10KM course was only 8.44KM
3. The obstacles were too easy. I made it through electroshock therapy without getting shocked. There should be slippery mud and hills to climb underneath to make it harder.”
“It was super fun ! We loved it ! We definitely want to come back next Year with friends !”
“Great fun day and well organized ”
“Fantastically organised! Our group had the best time! Can’t wait to do it again! ”
“There was a great amount of energy and atmosphere at the beginning but then none. At. All. I thought the obstacles were fun, but few and far between at the middle/end of course. I thought for over 300 sar that it was worth could’ve been more entertainment, food, merch. But thank you for organising. It was good fun to be apart of with my team. ”
“لم يكن هناك حوافز ميداليات في النهاية ”
“We had great time, will attend if happen again, need a little bit better organising. ”
“It was amazing, good adventure for kids and adults too”
“AMAZING! It was my first time and it wont be my last!
I would definitely attend again!”
“تجربة جديدة وممتعة ..المنظمين والمكان رائع بكل المقاييس
شكرا لكم ”
“Overall it was a great experience, but if the was an announcement of the winners it would be greater, thank you”
“I was expecting more obstacles and bigger ones
Overall it was so much fun
I wish SFA brings more events like that”
“I like the atmosphere, keep it up.
I think if you give medals to runers will be great.
Sharing photos for the runers is a good idea.”
“The race and obstacles was amazing.
But Unfortunately , after finishing the race, we did not hand out the medals after the race was over. And I upset once I known some of us in our team they receive the medals !!
I want the medals like my collage as well..”
“Do you have video or pictures of the Tough Mudder Riyadh as am trying to convince my friends from Jeddah to join on your next event.”
Great concept and lovely comeradery”
“Amazing race but boring finish ”
“I loved the experience! However, I believe it’s not well organized.”
“Event management, registration and security should be better
Obstacles were too easy ”
