HUR – results from feedback survey

Thank you for giving feedback. We received quite a lot of replies and you can still give feedback via Facebook or email etc. Our grades were really high, we want to thank you for that. For development of our event the written feedback is more valuable.

The most commented topics to be better next year were darkness during night, tight corners on short lap and handing out medals. We will focus on these and will also seek improvement to whole event.

The most commented positive feedback were athmosphere created by announcers, last 30 minutes intensity and food/drink service during the race.

Grades given by runners (50 answers):



Based on feedback it is clear that we are planning to have Helsinki Ultra Run also in 2017! See you there 🙂

Best regards,

Juha Palenius
