A new race is hitting the UAE! The Desert Warrior Challenge brings you challenging, yet FUN obstacle courses that are designed to test your physical capabilities, your mental strength, and your ability to work in a team. The courses will demand the participants to run, crawl, jump, climb, and challenge their boundaries with important sportsmanship.

The Desert Warrior Challenge is one of the many adventure and obstacle-type races that have been popular around the world; others include Warrior Dash, Spartan Race, and Tough Mudder. These challenges are attractive because it is an enjoyable and adrenaline-rushing way to get fit.

If you are worried about the technicalities and the safety of the event, Troy Gillham, the Director of the DWC reassures the public “Our structures are tested by the civil defense authority, and we’re in partnership with the Dubai Sports Council who handle our logistics matter including all the necessary medical support and emergency facilities”.
