Torch Run – Night (Trail) Run

New Date! Full Moon of 10th September 2022 – after sunset

When summer heat is scorching there is only one way of running – at night. With fading light the world looks different especially in the outdoors, colors are facing and turn into grey shapes only which brings a new challenge and excitement. Adding a dramatic environment like the mountains and an abandoned quarry promises to let you adrenaline pump.

We have set a course of approx. 5-6km at XQuarry in the beautiful Faya Mountains just 1hr drive from the cities of Dubai and Sharjah. The route will be on wide gravel tracks as well as short sections on single trail with climbs and drops and in some areas close to the cliffs (still far enough away to be safe). To help you navigate through the night we will put up fires as beacons along the way. It’s mandatory for each participant to bring a head torch or hand troch. We will have marshals along the way as well as Glow sticks every 50m.

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

Please read our terms and conditions.
