Spartan Race is the world's best obstacle course race, with over 240 races in 25 countries around the world this year. Spartan Race is not your everyday running race - expect to run, climb, push, pull, throw and crawl through walls, hills, mud, barbed wire and other challenging but fun obstacles. This November, get ready for both the Spartan Sprint and the Spartan Beast!
Destination Race: Mleiha, Sharjah, UAE
The XDubai Spartan Race heads out to Mleiha this November , a preserved ancient site located 60 Km from Sharjah International Airport and soon to become a UNESCO heritage site.
Mleiha is our 1st destination race; highlighting the city and site while allowing people to race in it as well as the 1st Beast race to earn your Trifecta!
Nowhere else in the UAE can you discover such important historical sites. Studies conducted in Mleiha show that it was first inhabited 130,000 years ago. Findings have revealed archaeological treasures left behind by the successive civilizations throughout history, spanning the Paleolithic Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age and pre-Islamic-period!
Sprint and Beast racers will push their limit on a new and challenging terrain as well as get the chance to enjoy spectacular views of Fossil Rock and Camel Rock Mountains

Spartan Sprint: 5+ Km 20+ Obstacles
The Spartan Sprint is our shortest course. It is a great starting point to becoming a Spartan. Sprint is fun for everyone from beginners to seasoned athletes. The Sprint presents plenty for the hardcore Elite to test themselves against while giving new Spartans a good start to their Trifecta.
If you think you can’t do it, you’re wrong. Get to the starting line and show yourself what you are capable of.
Spartan Beast: 20+ Km 30+ Obstacles
The Beast will test not only your endurance, perseverance and grit, but also your mind. The 20+ kilometer Beast packs 30+ Signature Spartan Obstacles and your final hurdle to complete your Trifecta. It won’t be easy, but there is no better feeling than the Spartan Medal around your neck after you fly across the finish line.
