The Al Marmoom Ultramarathon offers 3 grueling distances; the world’s longest desert ultra-run 270km over 5 days as well as continuous 100km and 50km ultra runs.

All three distances are self- sufficient,, with water and tents supplied, and across desert terrain in the breath taking Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve, Dubai UAE.

Terrain will change from hard sand tracks to soft moving dunes, and the route will include overnight camping, 5 stages and regular check points.

The Al Marmoom Ultramarathon will test physical strength and mental stamina as participants take in the beautiful desert landscape and spot indigenous and migratory wildlife.

Elite runners from across the globe as well as regionally, will take on the ultimate challenge of the longest desert ultra- run whilst the shorter distances are the perfect choices for ultra-runners who want to experience the magic of the Arabian desert and test their limits of physical and emotional endurance. The Al Marmoom Ultramarathon is for individuals and teams who want to test their limits and take on the ultimate challenge of a lifetime.
