Hejaz Overload

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Hejaz Overload race

History in the making:

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first Multi day foot race organized in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. You can't miss it.

The Hejaz Overload is brought to you by the same team who brought to you the inaugural Hejaz50 in March 2016, the Hejaz50v2 in an updated format in October 2016, the Hejaz50v3 in Octover 2017 and the Hejaz100 in March 2017! With an incline of 1250m the Hejaz50v1 was the toughest foot race organized in the western region but that event lost its title to the Hejaz50v2 with a hellish total incline of 1850m and close to 2000m incline for the Hejaz50v3.

You said you wanted more. We listened and we are bringing to you the Hejaz Overload!
