Challenge yourself on the beautiful ultra-trail UTH50 or UTH100 or the shorter but still challenging H30 trail run through the mountain passes, along jeep tracks, through boulder ravines and over spectacular sand dunes of Ras Al Khaimah. It is a tough challenge and requires training, but generous cut-off times (24hrs for 100k, 12hrs for 50k, 5.5hrs for 30k) allow most physically fit, determined and well-prepared runners to get to the finish.

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 drop bag! We aim to be a ‘No Waste Race’
