Challenge yourself on the beautiful ultra-trail UTH50 (ITRA 2 Points 5 Mountain points) or a shorter H30 (ITRA 1 Point 4 Mountain points) or H15 trail run through the mountain passes, along jeep tracks and through the boulder ravines of Ras Al Khaimah. It is a tough challenge and requires training, but generous cut-off times (10hrs for 50k, 6hrs for 30k – 50k runners must reach CP3 within 6hrs to be permitted to continue) allow most physically fit, determined and well-prepared runners to get to the finish. The 15km race start at 8:00am.


Race Pack Collection
Your Race Pack will be available at the admin table at the PARKING AREA rendezvous point on the morning of the event. Included in the pack will be your race bib, T-shirt and bandana. We would appreciate your cooperation in arriving in plenty of time to collect your pack. Please join the facebook group Urban-Ultra Dubai so that you are kept up to date with all the latest information.

Race Start and Check-In
Race check-in will be from 2.00am at the PARKING AREA (which is the 30k and 50k finish line). Your mandatory gear will be checked at this point before we board the bus for the start line (30k and 50k runners only).

You will now PARK your vehicle at the 30k/50k FINISH (Googlemaps link CLICK HERE) line and we will transfer you by bus to the START line. The bus will depart for the start line at 4.30am sharp. **If you miss this bus, you will be responsible for finding your own way to the start and there is no transfer back once you finish. The bus will leave promptly – please ensure you are ready to leave on time. The race brief will be given once we reach the start line.
This new format means you will be able to leave immediately once you finish the race.

The 15k runners will start and finish at the same point (out and back route) with no bus transfer necessary. (15km runner START/FINISH LNE Googlemaps link)
