Endurance sports to try in Dubai

Three ways to test your talents against the clock

Dubai Kartdrome Endurance Championship
Now in its ninth year, pro, semi-pro and corporate teams can enter this extreme-racing challenge, which builds up throughout the year to a 24-hour race on December 6. Requiring not only physical strength but heaps of mental stamina and ability, round three kicks off on October 11 with a 700km race, before the December final.

Dubai Marathon
Next year’s Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon takes place on January 24 and registration is open now. The official website features suggested training programmes for beginners and advanced runners alike, along with nutrition tips.

Equestrian Endurance Ride
With a mix of invitation-only, women-only and open endurance rides, the Emirates Equestrian Federation holds an annual programme of rides at Endurance Village, Al Wathba. Hosted during the cooler months, rides range from 100km to 160km.
