The running event kicks off a busy year in Ras Al Khaimah as we will see a number of sporting, family and entertaining events available to visitors of all ages.”
 
 
Participants of the event also took the time to congratulate the organisers following a successful event. 24k participant, Andrew Jones said: “Absolutely brilliant event. The course was so hard, but so much fun and beautiful scenery. Really well organised and the course was well signposted so you couldn\'t get lost.”
