If you’ve enjoyed some ‘downtime’ this summer, you’ll perhaps be starting to think about what you’d like to do when the outdoor season starts. Looking ahead, there are some exciting local running events are taking place in the closing months of 2019, with the Wadi Bih Run Hatta edition being the one that is making us most eager to lace up our trainers and get training.
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.
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.
The run will start at the Hatta Fort Hotel and follow an exclusive route to a high point in the Hatta 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.
Additionally, there will be a small recreational village set up at the venue, which will include a lunch area, an activation zone, pool access, Reebok ‘rest and recovery areas’ and more. This sounds like the perfect family weekend; a great excuse to escape the city and be active together.
