The Dubai Women’s Triathlon – taking place on November 27 – is open to women of all nationalities aged 15 and above, and those interested in taking part can register through Dubai Sports Council’s official website, www.dubaisc.ae.
Participants can choose from three categories: Super Sprint (400m swim, 10km cycling and 2.5km run), Sprint (750m swim, 20km cycle, 5km run) and the Olympic Distance (1.5km swim, 40km cycle, 10km run).
Hosted by the Dubai Ladies Club, it will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Sports Council, and there will be a training camp on November 14 to get participants ready for the event.
To get the participants ready for the event, Dubai Ladies Club will be hosting a two-hour complimentary triathlon training camp for registered participants on November 14, starting at 9am.
Experts at the DLC Triathlon Camp will be informing participants about the different racing techniques and the best way to transition from swimming to cycling and then running. Participants will also lean about the necessary diet and nutrition needed for the gruelling races.
Those who are interested in taking part in the DLC Triathlon training camp will need to pre-register by emailing arrabella.a@dubailadiesclub.
The Dubai Women’s Triathlon was the first event of its kind for ladies in the Middle East when it launched in 2017, and it has witnessed an impressive year-on-year growth since, thanks to the unwavering support it has received from both participants and the authorities.
This year the Dubai Women’s Triathlon will face a different kind of challenge due to COVID-19, but organisers have assured participants that all safety and precautionary measures – as imposed by the authorities – will be applied stringently. The safety of participants and everyone involved is paramount, and there will be no compromises on that front.
The comfort and privacy of our participants is also a top priority for the organisers and they have assured participants of complete privacy and freedom to compete in an atmosphere that confirms to the customs and traditions in the UAE.
Like every year, Dubai Ladies Club will host the Triathlon and all proceeds from registration will go towards charity.
