We recommend the teams register a spare, sixth runner in advance


For those of you that have registered, and those who have not already done so, can you please make sure that all your team members and guests have uploaded their passport and visa copy via our online partner Premier Online at www.premieronline.com as this information is vital to ensure your transit through the UAE Oman border in Dibba. Pending passport and visa documentation will be highlighted in a red bar across the top of the Premier Online website when signed in.

In previous years some teams have had runners drop out and have had to find a replacement runner at the last minute. In these circumstances it is very difficult to arrange the border crossing pass in a short period of time and we recommend that teams register a spare, sixth, runner in advance.
We are looking for volunteers to assist us on the race weekend to act as timekeepers, assist with registration and act as marshals on the course.

Volunteers will camp together with the organizers inside the grounds of the Golden Tulip hotel with access to the toilets and showers and meals provided. Volunteers will need their own transport to travel to and return from Dibba and will need to register for the border crossing on Premier Online. Individuals who are running the solo on Friday and still have the legs to stand and assist! would be welcome to help us with the teams on Saturday. Also, team runners on the Saturday are welcome to help us with the solo event on the Friday. Can you please pass this on to your friends and family members and get those who are interested to send us an email with their contact details to hr@wadibih.com

Please note that this year for the main team 72 event on the Saturday teams must have 2 female members if they want to be considered for the prizes.

We are again grateful to Salomon, the title sponsor for the event who are arranging for a great dry fit T-shirt for the event. We encourage all participants in the event to wear the Salomon event T-shirt at the start in front of the photo shoot board. Please note that there will be special prizes for teams wearing the Salomon event T-shirt during the run.

For the solo events starting early on Friday morning we are looking for a number of cyclists to lead the runners out on the course in the dark and if you’re interested in carrying out this role please contact John@wadibih.com
For those of you who have not registered please note that the event is filling up and that we have limited places and that entry will close on January 15, 2016 (or sooner if all places sell out).

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Keep up the training in the cooler weather and looking forward to welcoming you all to this year’s events
