Kids event

Just before the prize giving ceremony (around 11:30 a.m.) there will be a short informal Kids Event for boys and girls AT THE FINISH LINE area of the main event for age 7 – 11 years, and for the first time, a more proper race for the 12 to 15 year old kids. Because you are never too young to start, and we want to encourage all to be a part of the bicycle lifestyle.

There will be two race categories (age on the day of competition):

  • Under 12 for age 7 – 11 (2 laps around the camp area)
  • Under 16 for age 12 – 15 (around 5 km long route with small sand dune and some soft patches)

All participants will receive an Al Adaid Desert Challenge medal. Spot prizes for first three in each category.
