Welcome to the fully-supported 10k, 21k and 60km ultra trail run adventure that will start and finish at the same location – just 1.15hr from Dubai. Start Point: Wadi Koob village (25°29’43.61”N 56° 4’17.73”E). Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/9CqR8PWkR8YsQP2X7

10k start 8am

21k and 60k start at 5am

Please don’t forget … you must bring your own cups/bowl/fork if you want to consume the food and drinks we provide at checkpoints and race finish. You can buy them from the supermarket or bring them from home and leave in your bag or car! We aim to be a ‘No Waste Race’

Bananas, oranges, water, Aqualyte, nuts and dates available approx every 10km. This year we cannot provide hot food but we will provide hot water for your own dehydrated food and we will have snacks for the finishers of the 60k ultra. Commencing in 2019, no disposable plates or cutlery will be provided. As part of your mandatory kit you must pack a bowl and spoon in your car/bag(s).

The course runs along jeep tracks, goat trails, through boulder ravines and over spectacular mountain passes of the UAE with an elevation profile of approx 1000m in total for the 60k distance! It is a tough challenge and requires training, but a generous cut-off time of 11 hrs to finish allows most physically fit, determined and well-prepared runners to get to the finish. There are no hotels close by, so your choice is to camp the night before, or drive up early morning.

The start and finish are at the same point, so you can leave your vehicle safely here for your return home.

RACE DISTANCE ACCURACY: We try to make the distances as accurate as possible, however due to the nature of trail and also the differences between GPS watches, please understand that the full distance may vary plus or minus a couple of km, and will never be exact. This is the nature of trail running and more often your distance will exceed the distance advertised. If it’s a bit more, you just get to enjoy it a bit more!
