Challenge yourself on the beautiful ultra-trail run through the mountain passes, along jeep tracks and through boulder ravines of the UAE.
It is a tough challenge and requires training, but generous cut-off times (10hrs for 50k, 5.5hrs 30k) allow most physically fit, determined and well-prepared runners to get to the finish.
Make sure you are part of the original single-stage 30km and 50km trail run in the UAE!

  • Course:

    The course is marked with the following: orange spray paint, reflective tape and pink ribbon. You do not require a GPS for navigation, but it should be noted that we have had locals removing or moving markers in the past and although we will endeavour to check they are all still in place, you would be advised to use a GPS watch or know how to use a compass to locate start/finish and checkpoints.
    The course includes some steep and rocky elevation. The steep climbs are rewarded with some beautiful panoramic vistas of Ras Al Khaimah and weather permitting, should allow views to the Arabian Sea. Although not dangerously precarious, you should still exercise caution when navigating some sections. Narrow tracks and ledges, with loose rock and gravel accounts for most of the terrain here and can be potentially dangerous to people below you or yourself if you do not take adequate care. Much of the rock in this area is very sharp and razor like, please ensure your mandatory kit is complete in o

  • What to expect at the ultra run trail races?

    If you are a first timer at ultra run trail races, then understand that you need to have good basic fitness. You need to be physically fit to take on an ultra distance. Understand that unless you have signed up with a running partner, ultra running is a very solitary experience and much of the time you will spend on your own. This is all part of ultra running. It is a tough course and not for beginners to long distance events.
    When physical fitness begins to play with your mind - that’s when your mental strength and toughness kick in. Your body and feet will tell you that it’s impossible to get to the finish - your mind needs to overcome any pain or discomfort to tell your body that you can and you WILL cross that finish line! Prepare to be pushed to your limits, mentally and physically. (Read Blister Care by Denise Jones here: (www,badwater.com/training/blisters.html) for some great advice on how to treat blisters.
    Creepy Crawlies: There are snakes, scorpions, camel spiders etc. etc

  • Equipment:

    Make sure your running shoes are suitable for the rocky and sandy terrain. Heat, distance and constant friction will test your shoes (and feet) to the limit, so choose them wisely ensuring that the size will accommodate any swelling of your feet over these distances. Make sure they are worn in and
    are able to withstand the tough conditions.
    The contents of your pack will be important things to consider (no support outside of checkpoints is permitted) Make sure it is comfortable
    not just to run in fully loaded, but also to walk with. Your run changes with the weight and also how it is packed inside.

  • Nutrition:

    Your appetite and palate change when you are stressed, fatigued and under pressure - making yourself eat is a huge part of successfully completing an ultra run. Carry food you have tested in training if you need more than what we offer at the checkpoints.

  • What makes you penalised or disqualified?

    Please be respectful of your surroundings and keep impact to a minimum. Leaving nothing but footprints when we leave. Any participant seen to be littering will be penalised or disqualified. Any packets left on the course and NOT in a litter bin will be given a time penalty -repeated offences will result in disqualification.

  • What are supporters are permitted for?

    We welcome family and friends to the start and finish line. Supporters are not permitted to support outside of checkpoints and may not accompany runners in a vehicle. Supporters will not be able to make use of the bus transport specifically arranged for the participants.
