- 10 km
- 5 km
There will be a 1hour cut-off for the 5km 2hours cut off for the 10km 3hours cut-off for the Half Marathon, 6hours for the Full Marathon.
Due to the current condition of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are currently planning to limit the number of tickets to 50 only, following the regulation of the competent Saudi Authorities. ( updated 2020-06-25)
The 2019 and 2020 editions were held in the same location, 40minutes East of the city of Jeddah. Travelers coming for the marathon can really opt for any hotel in Jeddah as there will be very little traffic heading to the start of the race on a Friday morning. There are NO hotels near-by. It is possible to camp “near” the start. (avoiding hotels in the South of Jeddah is probably a good idea). The Novotel is a good option. You can mention the Hejaz Ultra
- We will be respecting Physical distances at the start & Finish
- We will have 4 waves for each of the categories 15 minutes apart. ( the Half Marathon will start 15 mins after the Full Marathon. the 10km race will start 15 minutes after the Half and the 5km will start 15 minutes after the 10km race). This will avoid crows at the registration tables, at the start and finish areas.
- We will take temperatures as you arrive in the parking area
- You will be asked to show your Tabaud/Tawakkalna app ( COVID-19 Contact Tracing App ). International Travellers are exempt. But will be asked to comply with the local regulation valid at that time, whatever will apply ( Quarantine, PCR Test etc etc )
