We want you to have a very fun race, but your safety is our top priority.
Please take a moment to read these instructions and keep them in mind during the run.


Keep hydrated – Solo runners especially, the wadi is dry and hot; you are running in an extreme environment.

Drive safely – The wadi is narrow at times; stay alert for other runners and cars.

Keep your speed down to avoid picking up dust – it’s not only a pain to run through but it reduces visibility in the wadi, which could lead to accidents.

Please offer solo runners support if requested as some of them may have no direct support vehicles. You can recognize them by the red or yellow bib numbers.


Assess the situation. If the injury is minor, use team support to transport to nearest marshal point or the ambulance. Ensure safety of incident scene by warning other teams and drivers. Call the Event Management on the numbers listed and try to send a message to the nearest marshal point by communicating:

  • Your name and position
  • The location of the incident (by distance to the Check Points or distinguishable landmark)
  • The nature of incident, state the facts
  • Wait for instructions from the Supper Sports Marshalls or Event Managment

Event Management Emergency Contact Number: +971 50 473 7634

Marshalls will be at the Start/Finish and Check Points There are only 7 check posts.

Marshalls will be wearing yellow vests and positioned with the yellow Super Sports vehicles. The Marshals are well trained to provide first aid in the wadi and they carry equipment for more serious injuries. Please follow their advice on the best course of action.
