This year the course will feature 20 obstacles, where the assault course is a total distance of three and a half kilometres of track that is chocked full of net crawls, ice water pools and more.

Participants between the ages of 15 and 60 can take part, early bird tickets are priced at Dhs210, regular price  Sign up here. As in previous years, the challenges will be categorised based on four different fitness levels, including an elite category for individuals with high fitness levels who can complete the course in less than 25 minutes.

All participants will receive a certificate, medal, refreshments and a t-shirt – after they complete the race, of course.

Come dressed in normal sports gear, soft sole shoes and gloves with a grip. Carry a spare change of clothes as you will get wet during the race. You’ll be provided with a helmet before you start the race.
