7am Start, JA Hatta Fort Hotel, Hatta, Dubai
The IGNITEDXB HATTA HILLS RUN 2018 offers spectacular scenery for the 21.1km Half Marathon and 10km runners as the route takes you through palm treed villages, up to the beautiful blue waters of the reservoir and dam with the majestic Hajar mountains in the distance, as well as some challenging hills to increase the heart rate. For the 5km and 2.5km runners, a X-Country course has been prepared within the beautiful and hilly grounds of the Hotel which will finish in the same place as all other runners on the morning. This run is for the whole family with 4 different distances to choose from on the day. From the advanced and the long distance runners to the more social and those enjoying the natural beauty. All ages and abilities are invited and a mix of on and off-road running will be experienced by all runners!
Commencing from the lawns of the enchanting JA Hatta Fort Hotel, 21.1km Half Marathon and 10km runners will make their way out of the Hotel Main Entrance, up the palm tree lined avenue toward the Hatta Municipal Park. Runners will then face a 24% steep gradient incline as they ascend to the top of the dam and reservoir walls respectively to view the majestic Hajar Mountain Range. The course then descends onto the off-road part of the course where runners will navigate their way through the mountain range and wadi’s on a compact off-road surface. The turn-around for Half Marathon is literally a dead-end in the road in front of a sheer rock face before making their way back to the Hotel.
Prize giving will be followed by a snack box breakfast with hot & cold beverages for all 21.1km Half Marathon, 10km, 5km and 2.5km runners and all are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and enjoy your breakfast box on the hotel lawns, within the race village. With many having spent the night at the hotel, it will be a perfect way to finish a fun-filled sporting weekend.
