Here’s your chance to race against each other in freezing conditions for a charitable cause as the annual Ice Warrior Challenge returns this weekend. It might not sound like the most relaxing thing to do but trust us, you don’t want to miss it.
Now running in its eighth consecutive year, the entry numbers for the October 6 event have already been impressive but you can still join and see why it’s highly rated with last-minute registration closing at midnight on Wednesday.
Held at Ski Dubai – the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East – there won’t be any skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing or even rolling down in the Giant Ball run, which admittedly are some of their popular attractions.
Instead, participants will be asked to run, climb and roll inside the -4 degree climate.
Specially for the day, the venue will be transformed into the ultimate obstacle course, featuring a cargo net crawl, zorb ball maze, monkey bar swings, tyre course and black run climb, amongst other action-packed ice-capades.
It will be a gruelling challenge that will test your stamina and determination but also a perfect opportunity for those who want to try out something new.
And there’s even more reason to sign up considering a portion of proceeds raised will be donated to Noor Dubai to help raise awareness for the visually impaired.
The Ice Warrior Challenge is open to all abilities for those aged 16 and above with registration costing Dh250 per person. Included in the fee is a certificate, a goody bag and refreshments.
And those who impress stand to win some fantastic prizes from New Balance, the event’s apparel sponsor. On top of that, the winning male and female warrior will also receive 125,000 Emirates Skywards Miles and many other exciting prizes from key sponsors.
Your participation will make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
Over the past seven years, the Ice Warrior Challenge has raised a total of Dh350,000 to date and that number will surely increase come the end of this weekend.
