Desert Warrior Challenge: a new concept of run in UAE

Desert Warrior Challenge: logoDesert Warrior Challenge brings you fun and challenging obstacle-course run, designed to test the physical power, mental strength, team-work and overall fitness of each and every warrior. The courses cater for participants with various skill and fitness levels, from children and those of little physical fitness, to the extreme athlete striving for the real warrior challenge. The courses will consist of a wide range of obstacles, having the participants run, crawl, jump, carry, climb and slide their way to the finish line, with a feeling of accomplishment unlike any other. Completing a Desert Warrior Challenge course is an accomplishment in itself. It requires mental toughness, physical strength and endurance…. And most of all the ability to work as a team to overcome what lies ahead.

Desert Warrior Challenge is partnered with the best training facilities and programs in Dubai and across the region, to give you potential warriors all the tools you need to prepare for the big day. Each of our warrior training partners knows what it takes to finish a D.W.C course and will be happy to put you/your team through the paces.

One of the greatest challenges is to find fun and innovative ways to encourage people to be involved in keeping fit and continually challenging themselves. Desert Warrior Challenge does just this. It not only has all the essential elements for a rigorous physical workout, it brings people together as a team in a fun and controlled environment.

Date – 17/10/2014 All Day
You can participate as an individual, to join a team or to create your own team.

Completing a Desert Warrior Challenge course will test you unlike anything ever before.  The obstacles and challenges throughout the course will force you dig deep within to find the inner warrior that we all have and rise up to overcome whatever it is that lay ahead.  Each course will house a variety of obstacles that will demand warriors to run,crawl,jump,climb and most importantly work as a team collectively to be able to finish.  The true essence of a Warrior is not only someone who lives to take on a challenge but one who will inspire and encourage others to be the best version of themselves. Warriors are everyday people who never settle for less than their best effort!

Desert Warrior Challenge provides the perfect environment for individuals to come together and challenge their boundaries with endless support, sportsmanships and camaraderie. Enjoyment and self satisfaction are core values of the DWC and the courses are therefore designed to suit all different abilities, providing challenge for even the elite athletes and ‘Hardcore Warriors’.

The course design and obstacle layout will be released to the warriors only on the day of the event, so be prepared for anything and everything the course throws at you.
