The Rush-A-Way Challenge is set to return to Dubai on 19 April. Get your friends together and take on the challenge, in teams of three to four people - the winners will take home the grand prize of AED10,000.
With 100 teams competing and 7 exciting and thrilling challenges set up all around the city, get ready to team up and experience an adrenaline-fueled adventure. Conquer the challenges to win the grand prize of AED 10,000.
Originally inspired by the reality TV show 'The Amazing Race', Rush-A-Way has tapped every nook of Dubai, turning it into a potential fitness zone. Last year, for example, one of the challenges involved participants visiting the fruit and vegetable market at Al Aweer to haul sacks of veggies, while the time before that had them delivering eggs on a cycle.
From paddleboarding and kayaking to obstacle courses, escape games, go-karting, archery and even a taste test, the competition tests physical and mental endurance. Hint: make sure at least one of your team members is a calm and collected driver who is familiar with the city, so you don't waste too much time getting to your next challenge.
