Race is on > 25th March 2022


The 2022 event will be held on March 25.


Dear outdoor activity and adventure seekers, we are happy to announce that Al Adaid Desert Challenge is back!

We have all been faced with the covid-19 restrictions and, as hard as we tried to fix a date, it is only now that we have a green light to go ahead with one of the most anticipated events in the off-road cycling and running calendar in Qatar.

The new date is March 25th, 2022. As we will be approaching the summer, start times and route adjustments may be required, but the start and finish line will stay the same. We would like to express our thanks to those who held their registration for the 2021 event and would like to welcome those who will sign up now. Registration is now open.

We would also like to announce that the event’s organiser, Qatar Cyclists Center, is under new leadership. The President of Qatar Cyclists and President of the Al Adaid Desert Challenge is Mr Saoud Ali Almuraikhi, with Vice President Mubarak Al Mohannadi as his right hand. The new Managing Director of the race is Mr Abdul Fatah Abdull. Al-Saadi and Mr Hamad Al Jaaidi as new Technical Director of the race. The long period since the last race in 2020 race has left the event without some sponsors, but that will not stand in our way. We are looking forward to meeting you all in the beautiful Inland Sea desert on the 25th of March. Until then, stay safe and train hard.
