Hike up the highest peak in the UAE.
All UAE residents are being invited to walk up to 11kms of the distance to the top of Jabal Hafeet Mountain. This mountain located primarily in Al Ain, rises 1,249 meters (4,098 ft) and its road extends for 7.3 mi (11.7 km) up the mountain, rising 4,000 ft (1,219 m). With 60 turns and three lanes (two climbing and one descending), Ḥafeeṫ Mountain Road is the challenge for hikers & cyclists who frequently come over to train.
There is a registration fee of 130 AED for each participant but no prizes will be awarded for this event as the objective behind the Walk is to promote Wellness and encourage UAE residents to adopt a healthier lifestyle. A portion of the fees will also be used to purchase Speech Therapy Machines for the Disabled.
It is a feel-good affair to enjoy the cold mountain weather on a cool February morning and walk amongst like-minded people and pets! It promises to be a wonderful day out as organisers are expecting up to 3000 people of all ages to register for this event.
And yes, there will be water, snacks and breakfast provided to all registered participants. Oh, and pets are welcome as long as they are on a leash!
