Etisalat Gladiators – Obstacle Course Race

Saturday 26th March 2022 – NEW DATE!!!

Etisalat Gladiators round 4 the season’s final – you are about to experience the roughest Obstacle Course Race (OCR) in the region – an almighty battle is about to take place at XQuarry.

This time winners will receive with their trophy amazing prizes courtesy of Etisalat –iPhones Xs Max 64GB, Samsung Note 10+ with buds bundle, Apple Nike S4 Smart Watches. Second and Third place will also receive great product prizes

You and your fellow Gladiators will face more than 32 challenges that test your strength, endurance, agility, physical skills and mental stamina – including challenges that were built to test the toughest 4×4 off road vehicles that frequent the XQuarry park. Throughout the 6km course you will navigate rocky terrain and challenging climbs, move rocks, scale boulders, trudge your way through our mud pit, and use your wit and agility to move swiftly through the gauntlet of obstacles that await you. For our top Gladiators, the challenge is twice as hard as you will aim to complete two full loops in the 12km+ category. There will be two stations with free drinking water and shade along the trail. All essential way points and obstacles will be marshalled to ensure route finding.

Runners and registered spectators will be able to watch and support the Gladiators in our Athlete Village from our viewing area/s with F&B available, music and activities. We will also have an area to wash the dirt away.

PARKING will be available by the Athlete Village directly to the start and finish of the race.

We look forward to welcoming you and friends in true Etisalat Gladiator spirit to share what is on offer throughout the course and in the Etisalat Gladiator Village. PLUS you can enjoy the park after the race is completed – ALL registered participants can register up to 4 guests and you will each gain free General Admission (value AED50) for the rest of the day in the XQuarry Park.

Access and use of the park is at your own risk!
