The 2016 Race
The 2016 Liwa Challenge is a 100 and 200 km nonstop foot race that takes place in Liwa desert, in the Abu Dhabi Emirate, a continuation of the Saudi inhabited Rub al Khali desert (Empty Quarter).
Either a team (minimum 3 people) or an individual can compete in the race, self-sustained with the use of a GPS. The Liwa Challenge is in line with extreme desert races
The course will consist of 9 checkpoints, 4 checking beacons and twenty waypoints, with a finish at the top of Tal Moreeb, one of the highest dunes in the world. Once the finish line crossed, there is only 300 meters to coast down and physical efforts will make way for souvenirs of an unforgettable race.
