NAS Night Challenge returns to Dubai with Dh144,000 up for grabs

 

DUBAI – This Ramadan, the 4km night-time obstacle course NAS Night Challenge is back with Dh144,000 in prize money.

Under the patronage of the Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, NAS Night Challenge returns to the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex on May 10 and 16.

The event’s third incarnation during Dubai Sports Council’s NAS Sports Tournament brings more prize money than ever before, with the male, female and team professional heats being in with a shout of winning part of the Dh144,000 prize money.

The last event, held during Ramadan 2018, welcomed more than 2,000 participants from here in the UAE and around the world.

Saeed Al Hareb, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, stated “We are committed to encouraging people from across the city to get active and NAS Night Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for them do so. ”

The course this year is along 4km, and the obstacles include some long-time classics and some new surprises that participants will have to crawl, swing, jump, and climb their way around.

An obstacle course like no other, the atmosphere at NAS Night Challenge is, quite literally, lit. Held under the stars, think neon lighting, fire pits, and glowing obstacles. It’s a favourite with many participants for a reason, and is also perfect for a first foray into obstacle course racing for those who haven’t tried it before.

Troy Gilham, Managing Director of Warrior Events, said, “The night-time element of this exciting event makes it something a bit different from all of the other obstacle courses in the region.”

The event is open to all male and female UAE nationals and residents over the age of 16.
