More
Take part in this amazing Mleiha desert adventure run and fat bike race. Choose from a 5k family fun run, 10k, 25k or 50k ultra trail run or a 10k and 25k fat bike race - all with cash prizes for 1st place winners. Camp with us on Friday night in our designated campsite next to the start/finish with on site toilets. All camping equipment like tent, sleeping bags, grill, BBQ food/water, firewood, comfort items etc. are your own responsibility.

Races will begin from 7:00am and you will head off to run or ride your selected distance on a flat but challenging well marked course, then return to the finish. Enjoy the winter weather and tranquility of the desert with your family and friends.

And for the rest of the family and kids? Explore the historical archeological centre of Mleiha or stargaze under the spectacular winter sky, and the on site cafe is serving food all day if you don’t feel up to cooking yourself!
