Camel marathon to make its debut in Dubai

Dubai is soon going to debut on a Camel Marathon to be held on December 3.

The marathon will see winners winning cash prices as well as award luxury vehicles.

The initiative is organised by the Hamdan Bin Mohammad Heritage Centre (HHC), which will follow the National Day celebrations of Decemver 2.

“We see the cultural, sports and traditional activities we hold as a means of reviving the customs and practices of our ancestors. Camels were a key means of livelihood for the people of the Arabian Peninsula. They taught people patience and endurance and even had songs and poems written about them. Hence we at [HHC] are keen to introduce new ways to try and inspire citizens to breed and care for camels,” said HHC CEO Abdullah Hamdan Bin Dalmuk.
