Including a 21km trail run for those not quite ready for the ultra distance! PLUS a team event for those wanting to split the 50k ultra distance between 4 runners!

This incredible ultra-trail adventure takes you into the wilderness of the United Arab Emirates. A fully supported single-stage race will take you through rocky mountain terrain and over the spectacular sand dunes of the UAE. This is a serious challenge and not for the faint-hearted. It is tough and will test you to your very core. Sand gaiters recommended but not essential. (Sand section approx 4km long right at the very beginning. 21km route does not include desert section)


(Note: The road is accessible to saloon car, however please park before the softer sand close to the start line, you are likely to get stuck).
