About Al Marmoom Ultramarathon

Al Marmoom Ultramarathon is a tough multi stage challenge over endless sand dunes and under a relentless sun.

You can expect on average 8 hours of sunshine a day. The average daytime temperature in Dubai in December is a warm 27 C, but under the sun in the desert, temperatures can rise to 35 C whilst the average night-time temperature cools to 15 C and may be damp and foggy.

Communal tents will be pitched and there will be water rations on the route and in the camp.
To enter you have to be physically fit and mentally strong, and you need the right equipment.
Competitors will use a combination of running and walking to get across the finish line – and getting to the finish line is the ultimate reward.



Camp accommodation will come in the form of traditional Bedouin style tents that will be erected by the race organiser. Tent inhabitants will be selected at random and once participants are allocated one, this will not change throughout the entire race.

The medical team will be present throughout the race with the use of assistance and paramedic vehicles.

The medical team is authorized to remove the race bib and to eliminate any participant they feel physically unfit to continue the race and/or having received vital medical care.

Equipment Storage

Luggage deposit will be made available to all runners. While maximum care and security will be enforced, the organizer will not be responsible for any loss or damaged items. Participants who choose to leave items at the luggage deposit may do so at their own risk.
