River Run: 90 minutes away from Jeddah following the flow of a river! from a 6km walk to a Half-Marathon run.
It is not required to REGISTER for this training. you can just show up ( on time … and with all the required gear and a 4×4! – 2WD SUVs not suitable as we will be driving on a sandy trail and there is a chance for 2wd vehicles to get stuck. hardcore 4×4 equipment not required.)
Free Entry. All levels are welcome to the River Run
Fill up your tank. by Thursday night. You will not have time on Friday morning. We will NOT stop on the way.
We will be crossing a Police CheckPoint.
Transport: We do NOT provide Transport!
A 4×4 is required as there is a sandy track to reach the start of the run. SUV is ok provided it has an AWD/4×4 mode. the track is NOT going across dunes, but it will get a little bit tricky on some portions, especially before sunrise. Do not attempt to cross the sandy patch with a Sedan as you will get stuck. Stopping to get your vehicle unstuck before the run will not be possible as it would delay everyone who needs to start before it gets too hot. You’ve been warned.
Here is the schedule:
What to bring:
It is a straightforward “Out and Back” . It is open for ALL LEVELS. Beginners are welcome. You can Hike or Run or Moutain Bike. It will be a Self-Timed event for those who want to do the Half-Marathon or 10km run. You can turn around at any point of time ( you will need to turn around after at MOST 70 minutes since the return back to the car will be more difficult and will take longer ).
Phone: There will be NO Phone SIGNAL.
We count on you not to LITTER. We must Leave No Trace !
