This is a team relay event of 50km and we encourage families with children, boys or girls aged 9 to 17 years to take part . In each relay team, there should be a minimum of 2 adults.

The relay, which starts from the Golden Tulip Hotel in Dibba is for teams of 5 runners on asphalt road, then gravel track up to CP9 & then returns to the start. There will be a total of 18 stages of approximately 3km each. While a runner is doing 1 stage, the vehicle transports the other team members along the route.


Requirement: Teams to consist of minimum 5 runners with at least 1 female runner.



Staggered start from 6 to 8 am from GT HOTEL. The total length of the route is approximately 50 km and this is split into 18 stages. Each runner must complete at least two stages.

The first and last stage must be completed by 4 runners whilst all other stages are by 1 of the team members. Runners are only to handover their baton at designated check points, no swapping of runners in the middle of stages. Support cars are not to follow runners at runner’s pace. Once handed over please proceed to next check point.

It is essential that each team limits themselves to one vehicle to avoid congestion problems in the wadi. Excess vehicles can be left parked at the beach at the start point. Drivers are to keep speed to a minimum and at all times avoid raising dust while driving in the wadi.

Running in dust is not fun! Dust reduces visibility and we want you to avoid accidents with other runners or cars. Teams not following this rule will not be given an official time in the event or be eligible for prizes.
