This is a team relay event of 70Km and we encourage families with children, boys or girls aged 9 to 17 years to take part. In each relay team, there should be 5 runners with at least one female runner (2 adults to be present in each team). Only 4 x 4 vehicles permitted.

The relay is in the beautiful mountain of Hatta and starts at the Hatta Fort Hotel and is on asphalt road, through the gravel track, then returns to the start and goes back again for second loop – total distance approximately 70Km (one loop being 35Km), the route is marked by stage markers and while a runner is doing 1 stage, the teams own support vehicle will transport the other team members along the route.


The total length of the route is approximately 70Km and has total of 11 checkpoints during each loop, starting from Hatta Fort hotel through the Hatta mountains and circling back to the Hatta Fort Hotel to finish.

Each runner must complete at least two stages. The first and last stage must be completed by 4 runners whilst all other stages are to be completed by 1 of the team members. Runners are only to handover their baton at designated check points, swapping of runners in the middle of stages is not allowed.

After registration, teams will be started when they are ready by a marshal between 6.00 am and 8.00 am. Support cars are not to follow runners at runners pace. Once the baton is handed over the support car should proceed to the next check point.

It is essential that each team limits themselves to one vehicle to avoid congestion problems. Excess vehicles can be left parked at the start point. Drivers are to keep speed to a minimum and always avoid raising dust while driving.

Running in dust is not fun! Dust reduces visibility and we want you to avoid accidents with other runners or cars. Teams not following this rule will not be given an official time in the event or be eligible for prizes.
