One of the toughest and most famous running events in the region, the Wadi Bih Run, is set to return for a second time in 2018 as organisers launch a new edition of the race that will take place in the stunning mountains of Hatta on November 9.
Complimenting the traditional Wadi Bih Run, which takes place annually at the start of the year in Dibba, Oman, the UAE version will be organised by the same event organisers in partnership with global fitness brand Reebok and will feature familiar race categories.
Organisers will replicate many elements of the much-loved event in the similar terrain of Hatta, whilst removing the need for runners to cross the border into Oman. Participants can choose from the Team 70km, Team 35km, Solo 70km, Solo 35km, Solo 20km along with a special 2.5km run exclusively for children.
A camping area will be prepared at the start, within Hatta Fort Hotel’s grounds, that will be open to participants in the event the night before race day and a small recreational village will be set up at the venue, which will include a lunch area, an activation zone, pool access, Reebok rest and recovery areas and more.
The run will start at the Hatta Fort Hotel and follow an exclusive route in Hatta to a high point in the mountains - offering some spectacular early morning views - before returning to the hotel. Those taking part will receive official timing, a certificate, medal, refreshments, a t-shirt and even a post-event packed lunch at Hatta Fort Hotel.
