The Al Marmoom Camel Racetrack will be in full swing with the return of its famous camel racing – an integral part of the UAE’s heritage.

Dubai's camel racing season attracts droves of incredibly skilled camel riders from around the world in competition for coveted titles and valuable prizes. The stakes get higher every year with breeds trained and bred for high-endurance racing competing against evenly matched opponents in a display of impressive stamina and majesty.
Each race is between 4-6km long and you can experience plenty of enthusiasm from the stands as the crowd cheers on their favourite camel. While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the neighbouring Al Marmoom Heritage Village for a truly authentic Emirati experience.
