Tickets are on sale now for the Spartan World Championships in Abu Dhabi which will take place on Saturday, December 4, 2021. Runners from all over the world will be invited to test their inner Leonidas against the sand and grit of the Moreeb Dunes in Abu Dhabi’s Liwa Desert, in either a 50km or 21km trail.
Though in contrast to traditional Spartan Races there are no obstacles to overcome, you will be racing through some tough, hauntingly beautiful desert geography. This, after all, is Sparta.
Early bird ticket prices for the 50km trail start at USD127.99, around Dhs470. Prices for the half marathon start at USD99.99 (Dhs367ish). The race.spartan.com website will also help you book transport to the Spartan Village and overnight camping for the event.
