It’s winter and that means the great outdoors is waiting, and a brand-new, and permanent, obstacle course has opened in Dubai that promises to get you active, and test your ability to clamber, climb and cling on.
Aventura, found in Dubai’s Mushrif Park, is launching its first public obstacle race, with individual entries and team entries available for up to three members per crew. A new addition, the fitness department of the park will be running a number of bootcamp classes, an obstacle course race and even a running club for you to get involved with, including a dedicated race event on Saturday January 18.
The 2km track is aimed at everyone, regardless of your experience or level of fitness, with a number of different obstacles depending on how tough a challenge you fancy.
It comes in at Dhs126 per person, and includes different challenges including a 3D spider’s web, rope climb, tire pulls and more. There are prizes on offer, including up to Dhs2,500 in cash for teams, and up to Dhs2,000 for individuals.
If you fancy heading along without the competitive element, the track is open seven days a week, from 9am until 10pm from Thursday to Saturday, and from 1pm until 8pm from Sunday to Wednesday. General access is Dhs185, and kids under 1.4m tall can get in for Dhs149.
