This new addition to our race caters to the enthusiastic kids wanting to take part from age 8 to 18.

All races will take place on the 9th November 2018

The Relay 70 km and Relay 35 km races are for teams of five, on routes marked into stages ranging from 3.43 km to 6.35 km in distance. Individual runners must take turns to run each stage while their support vehicle transports the other team members along the course, except for the first and last stage where four members of the team are required to run together. All categories will start and finish at the Hatta Fort Hotel in Hatta, providing runners with the option to stay for the night/weekend. A race village at the hotel will provide amenities, food and several entertainment options for the whole family throughout the day.

Race Director Neil Young commented, “The Reebok Wadi Bih Run continues to be a hugely popular highlight on the running calendar due to its dramatic off-road routes. The solo races have grown from a few extreme athletes attempting ‘something different’, to becoming the ultimate regional long-distance running challenge with stiff competition. We urge entrants to register soon to avoid disappointment for this fantastic weekend.”

Registration will close at 23:59 1st November 2018, or when the maximum number of entrants has been reached.
