Important Safety Information

We want you to have a fun race and your safety is our top priority.
Please take a moment to read these instructions and keep them in mind during the run.


Keep hydrated

Solo runners especially, the wadi is dry and hot; you are running in an extreme environment.

Drive safely

The wadi track is narrow and steep in places; stay alert for other runners and cars.

Keep your speed down to avoid picking up dust

It’s not only a pain to run through but it reduces visibility in the wadi, which could lead to accidents.

Support runners

Please offer solo runners support if requested as some of them may have no direct support vehicles. You can recognize them by the different bib number ranges.


Assess the situation. Should the injury be minor, use support of team vehicles and others to transport to the nearest Checkpoint that has a Marshal. Ensure to warn other runners and drivers as well of the incident scene. Call the Event Management/Safety Marshal team on the numbers provided to you:

  • Your name
  • The location of incident (by a distinguishable landmark or distance to/from nearest checkpoint)
  • The nature of incident, state the facts

Wait for the instructions from the Event Management/Safety Marshal team.
Marshals can be identified easily as they would be wearing yellow safety vests. Please follow their instructions and advise for the best course of action.

Event Management and Safety Marshal team member numbers will be shared on our website and at registration desk, along with checkpoint numbers that would be manned by the Marshals.
