With only a few weeks to run in pleasant weather and before the Holy Month of Ramadan starts, we want to gather for the occasion of World Health Day, a WHO initiative, and run up and down the East-Dhahban dunes!
We will offer a great running experience for both dunes first-timers ( 3.5km ) and seasoned runners ( 7km ) with only 20 runners in each group to respect the COVID-19 protection measures.
We will meet at 06:15 AM on the Usfan Road where we will check temperature and Tawakkalna App before driving (Sedan is ok - SUV preferred) another 15 minutes to the start of the run.
You will need a mask at the start of the run for the Safety Brief.
Running with a hydration pack or a small backpack with 1 to 1.5L will be a must.
Sunscreen + sunglasses and a hat, as well as a buff or tube bandana or scarf, is recommended.
Only 20 spots for grab for each distance: Register now for free on https://hejazultra.org/event/world-health-2021
If you are joining virtually, download Map My Run and run your own 7km route from wherever you are. Be part of the community challenge by using #UARunSeries to post your results.
