Spartans, it’s time for the battle cry. XDubai is bringing back its women’s only Spartan Race on October 27 at the Jebel Ali Race Course in Dubai.
To be held during this year's Dubai Fitness Challenge (October 19 to November 17), the obstacle course race is Open to women aged 15 and above, the 2018 event builds on the region's first Spartan Race which took place in Dubai in December 2017, to include not one but two new race lengths as well as a Spartan Kids' Race designed specifically for the next generation of Spartans.
The exact details of each race are never usually revealed beforehand - making it even harder - expect mud, water, barbed wire and more. This year, there will be two categories of Spartan Races for women. The event will feature a 5+ Km Sprint that packs more than 20 signature Spartan obstacles, and a 13+ Km Super with over 25 signature Spartan obstacles as well as a tougher and more rugged terrain. Both Sprint and Super lengths will also feature Elite and age group category options for those wanting to test their mettle against fellow competitive athletes, while giving the top Elite racers a chance at glory and cash prizes. Distances for the Spartan Kids' Race, which is open to both girls and boys, range from 800m for kids aged 4-6 years to 1.6km for kids aged 7-9 years to 3.2km for those aged 10-14 years.
The event will take place during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Spartan Arabia has pledged to donate a percentage of the proceeds from the event to the Al Jalila Foundation in partnership with Brest Friends as well as participants can also donate during the event. Funds donated will be used to support breast cancer patients and fund ongoing research.
With tickets available now, the Sprint and Super races are exclusively open for female participants, but the fun and interactive festival area will be open to both women and men with an AED20 charge to cheer on their mothers, wives, friends and colleagues who will be competing in the race.
