“Poor service, at the registration counter they had given me a wrong race number (10017) and my original race number (10010) was already issued to someone. But the organiser assured ( Ms. MEHAR) later the number will be changed in the system to allocate my name. But they haven't done the changes prior to the race or post the race, inspite of several reminders till today they have not changed. Due to this unprofessional, i have not collected the award for 3rd place in age category. ”
“Great! Generous with sponsors and supply of goodies for everyone! ”
“Lacked photographers, no photographers at the finish line.
There is no feature where you type your bib number and it automatically sorts the photos for you. It is a waste of time to search through hundreds of photos just to find the ones we want. ”
“Mind blowing event with a wonderful experience. A very well organized event with the great involvement of authorities as Dubai Police had controlled the roads and entirely traffic free route. Had an amazing start of the day at a nice venue.”
“It would be nice if the race will start at 5am, because it becomes too hot when its 8am onwards. ”
“it was well organised, track was a little boring, ”
“It was ok organized, nothing bad happened but also nothing extraordinary or memorable pops my mind as well :) ”
“The prize giving took far far too long.”
“It was a nice run.
However, it would have been good if the water at the aid stations could have been chilled.
Also, they had run out of water in the race village when I finished.”
“Great event!! Well done to everyone who took part!”
“Medal was given for Half Marathon, where the my participation was for 10K. ”
“the race track is not good, there is no free t shirt, the water is not cold at the water station while running. when you reach the finish line they give not good fruit and very limited refreshments. I feel so disappointed and that is may last run to Wellman forsure or maybe i could say in Meydan. And no linked where you can take the personal photo it say kindly check the facebook page and when you check there page nothing is there. Limited photo uploaded.”
“Poor road signs sent me off course and it ruined the entire experience.”
“Very well organized, great host, keeping the energy up! Loved it. Going to take part on the next ones ;)”
“I like to thank Al Sahel contracting Co. For very well organised race this company has recognised all most all categories. Although last category was 60 to 99,i was 78 years there was no way that would be recognise but out the blue I was appreciated as eldest participant. I want you to create a catagory 3 eldest participants so we get recognised. Please please do that I need to be recognised.

“Very enjoyable event, however, two points to note:
1. , There should be marshalls at every point there is a possibility runners may take a wrong turn (this happened on 1 October at Meydan with the leaders of the 10km pack at around 4km mark).
2. Speed up awarding of trophies to minimise number of participants leaving before the ceremony is over, especially for those who have other commitments, work related or otherwise (perhaps sponsor raffles and group awards/photos could be left until the end)”
“Some electrolyte after 10K would have helped.”
“It was amazing experience, thank you so much ”
“No cold water around the track at all. ”
“It was an amazing experience!!!”
“Lack of marshals- 10k runners took the wrong turn, insufficient signs on the track!
No garbage bins on site- the place looked very messy after a while.
Incredibly long result ceremony!
“The on run route staff were great. Supportive and friendly. Lots of water stations, which was nice. ”
“Would be nice to have a bag drop station.”
“Event was planned very well”
“the race narrator's voice before and after the race was very very loud and annoying... speakers were turned on to a very high volume!”
“Shortage of water at finish line.”
“Organising was tops. Route just a tad boring.
Will also suggest bins with the water tables or a 100m after water tables so we can all throw our bottles away instead if throwing it on the ground”
“Well organised, good turnout, overall it was just a really nice day and event.”
“Prize giving took too long and too stretched out. But the whole event was excellent otherwise ”
“Lovely route. Friendly and helpful volunteers. Well organized. Will definitely run it again.”
“Very well organized race, beautiful track, exact timing service, water at the course ”
