It is with great sadness and disappointment that we announce the postponement of this year’s Hajar 100‭ ‬and Kalba Kickr races‭.‬
Our ultimate repsonsibility as race organisers‭, ‬has always been and will remain‭, ‬the health and safety of our participants and our staff‭. ‬Unfortunately due to the increased spread of the Covid-19‭ ‬virus in the UAE and its subsequent new and more easily transmissable and possibly deadlier variants‭, ‬the risks involved in such extreme and physically demanding trail runs are too high for us to safely deliver a race that we feel would adhere to covid safe protocols‭.‬
All aspects of the race have been taken into consideration‭, ‬such as the initial group race check-in‭, ‬group briefing and transport to and from the start/finish lines‭, ‬as well as the inability to reach any serious covid-related emergency cases in a timely manner as well as the possible exposure of the virus to our staff and volunteers‭.‬
Registrations will be pushed to 2022‭ ‬at no extra charge for the same approximate dates‭, ‬unless indivduals want to request a refund‭ (‬a 10%‭ ‬processing fee will be charged‭ if insured and 15% if uninsured registration was taken), ‬in which case you must contact the Help Line at Hopasports immediately within the next week to advise of your intention‭. ‬If no email is received your registration will not be refundable and will be pushed to the 2022‭ ‬event‭.‬
We hope you understand our position and our proactvie response to the growing concerns of the spread of the virus and that we are trying to act responsiby with you in mind‭. ‬Safety for us comes before profit and we feel this is the best decision in these very challenging times‭, ‬all things considered‭.‬
That said‭, ‬we hope that by April‭, ‬things will have improved somewhat‭, ‬positive cases on a rapid decline and events returning to‭ ‬some kind of normal‭. ‬We look forward to welcoming you back to the Urban-Ultra Wadi Racer on April 10th for an amazing run through the trails of Wadi Shawka‭!‬
