  • Dubai’s newest sporting event, the Dubai Desert Triathlon, has generated significant interest and excitement within the triathlon and endurance horse riding communities with over 120 teams entered for the inaugural event.

Dubai: Dubai’s newest sporting event, the Dubai Desert Triathlon, will have more than 120 teams for the inaugural event, organisers announced on Thursday.

The Dubai Sports Council has partnered with Meydan Racecourse to develop an innovative event which combines the traditional heritage Emirati sport of endurance horse racing with the triathlon disciplines of running and cycling.

Organisers say they are delighted with the response received, not only locally, but also internationally, with registrations far exceeding expectations.

“We are very pleased with the response we have had from the triathletes and endurance riders. It is clear that they are excited and enthusiastic to be part of something which may well be a world first,” said Nasser Al Rahmah, Director of Sports Events Department at Dubai Sports Council.
