The Wadi Bih Run was the brainchild of John Gregory & John Young and this edition marks 30 years since 1993 when a total of 80 hardy souls ran, in relay teams of 5, from RAK, adjacent the Arabian Gulf through the dramatic Wadi Al Biyh before climbing to over 1000m and descending to Dibba via the dramatic narrow gorge – Wadi Khabb Al Shamsi – with the stunning trajectory of the mountains adjacent the Gulf of Oman.
Wadi Bih Run returns back with its Hatta edition on the 29th January, 2023.
This edition of the Hatta run is similar to our previous Hatta run and starts from the Wadi Hub at Hatta by Dubai Holdings, Hatta, U.A.E.
The run will stay in line with its values of being an escape from the city while still being over rugged terrain and in the mountain, which gives the event a unique flavor. The overall length of the course is 35Km and is split into 10 stages of different lengths and elevation levels, going through the Hatta border mountain (607m altitude), plantation, and kayak lake.
This event features two different categories –
Solo: Solo 10Km, Solo 20Km, Solo 35Km, and Solo 70Km (6:15 AM mass start)
Teams (5 participants): Team 35Km and Team 70Km (6:30 AM onwards)
Kindly note below few important points below:
-> 4×4 vehicles must be used due to the nature of course, without it you wouldn’t be allowed to participate.
-> Each team should comprise of 5 members, with at least 1 female runner in order to eligible for prizes.
It is possible to have even only 4 or 3 members in a team with no female runner, but you wouldn’t be eligible for prizes and the entry fee is the same as for a team of 5.
-> Cars to be ahead of the runners and wait at the next checkpoint.
Runners to be swapped at every checkpoint.
-> Support stations are available at various checkpoints for solo runners only.
