Race Packs will NOT be taken to the start line, so please ensure you collect prior to race day. Thank you.

The course is 100% gravel jeep track and rocky wadi bed with short sharp climbs and undulations. The course will be marked with light reflective material for navigation.
There are no hotels nearby, so your options are driving to and from the site for the event or camping once you are finished. (No campsite is allocated but you are free to find yourself a place to pitch your tent, there are plenty of lovely areas).
Water and energy drinks will be provided during the race at the checkpoints but please make sure that your obligatory hydration pack (1.5ltr) is fully filled from your own supplies before the start.
Please be respectful of our surroundings and keep impact to a minimum. Leaving nothing but footprints when we leave.
Please note, that the course road is not closed to traffic, and locals use parts of it to access their villages. Be aware that you may encounter a minimal amount of cars or trucks whilst running. To keep this traffic to a minimum, we would ask that any supporters do so from the START/FINISH point so we minimise any chance of accident or injury and churning up dust for the runners. HAVE FUN!
