I will come again (about: 2002)|
Klaus Germer from Singapore (1/26/02)
This is one of the small marathons where you get to chat with the people you pass (or who pass you), everything is cozy and by the end you think you know all participants. The course is flat and fast, drinks (no food) are a-plenty (if somehow irregular) and for me, who has lived in Dubai some ten years ago, it was a good way to see the places I knew from before. Only bitter pill, like in many of the small runs: They don't seem to get the marking right - what is so difficult about marking the distance correctly? - But all in all it was a great run and the special atmosphere of the orient was felt, if you had the time for it...
