6.30am Start, Mamzar, Dubai, UAE

Join us for an action-packed morning of triathlon with open water swimming, biking and running. Perfect for first timers, offer fast times for the advanced, and are therefore ideal for all ages and abilities. Enter a relay team of 2 or 3 athletes. The course offers calm waters in the lagoon, closed roads and a designated running track that ensures a safe and fun race. Music, lots of aid stations, supporters and a real community feel makes these triathlons special. We also offer a discount on Family and Group Entries.

Please check out the Triathlon: Hatta – this is a new venue and offers a triathlon that will test you to your limits. Spectacular scenery with a nature-based course of dams, hills, mountains and wadis will make this a triathlon to remember.


Most triathletes come to races with only a basic understanding of the rules of triathlon. Indeed, few have ever read through the Competitive Rules in there entirety. As this event is a community orientated event where we wish to offer all interested individuals of all ages and abilities the opportunity to compete in a triathlon, we rely on athletes to be as honest and as understanding as possible throughout all parts of the event in order for all to have an enjoyable experience on the day and in future races. In order to minimize misunderstandings on Race Day, I hope you will take the time to read the below details and look forward to seeing you at the race.
