Etisalat Gladiators – Obstacle Trail Run

Friday 22nd October 2021

Etisalat Gladiators – you are about to experience the roughest OCR race in the region, an almighty battle is about to take place at XQuarry.

You and your fellow Gladiators will face 32 challenges that test your strength, endurance, agility, physical skills and mental stamina – including challenges that were built to test the toughest 4WD vehicles that frequent the XQuarry park. Throughout the 5km+ 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 10km+ category.

Runners and registered spectators will be able to watch and support the Gladiators in our Athlete Village from our viewing area/s. We will also have a bag drop area, along with toilets and an area to wash the dirt away.

PARKING will be available by the Athlete Village along with parking security.

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!

Please read our terms and conditions.
