Dubai’s thrilling adventure race, the Mercedes-Benz Challenge presented by Gargash, will be back this November and is gearing up to be more intense and exciting then ever.
Gargash Enterprises has partnered with Rush-A-Way to create a thrilling and adrenaline-fueled adventure around Dubai, where 100 competing teams will attempt to overcome seven exhilarating challenges set up in various corners of the city to win the grand prize – a Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV.
This event, which takes places on Friday, November 2, is the perfect weekend activity to get out, take on unique adventures with friends and discover new experiences and locations in Dubai.
It promises to be a day of high energy and great emotions, as participants will face seven challenges that will test speed, logic, fitness, accuracy, perseverance, patience and navigation. Teams will have no prior details of what are the challenges or where they are located and hence need to work as a team to strategise for each challenge, in order to complete them at their best speed.
A hundred teams comprising of two to four members will compete with other participating teams to tackle specially-crafted challenges set up around Dubai. For each challenge, teams will earn points based on how quickly they complete it. After completing each challenge, teams will receive location details for their next challenge. The team with the highest score at the finish line wins the grand prize.
Challenges from previous seasons involved paddleboarding at Jebel Ali Beach Resort, tackling an obstacle course, getting through an Escape Game in Al Barsha, hitting targets in an archery arcade in Al Quoz, speeding on go-karting circuits in Oud Metha, carrying vegetables sacks at Al Aweer vegetable market and making deliveries on bikes in JLT.
To sign up your team, visit rushawayuae.com/event/gargash. The registration fee is Dh300 per person and is inclusive of lunch and entertainment at a five-star property, breakfast and a welcome kit.
Participating teams need a Mercedes-Benz during the event to travel between challenge locations. If you don’t have one or can’t borrow one for the day, organisers have tied up with SIXT to offer special rental rates for the event.
