Dubai Sports Council announces slew of community events in Hatta


The scenic hills of Hatta are set to become the centre of attention for adventure and sports enthusiasts in the coming weeks and months.

The region is gearing up to host a series of community events, starting with a women’s only programme on October 23.

'Women’s Adventure' Hatta will see participants aged 16-60 start with a hike through the mountains followed by kayaking, before finishing with a sumptuous lunch.

The next event on the list is the Stand-Up Paddling competition, which is scheduled to take place on October 30 on the picturesque Hatta Lake, and is open to men and women. 

There is a 'Yoga and Rowing' expedition planned for November 20, followed by the 'Garmin Quest Race' on December 18 which will involve kayaking, running and mountain biking.

Then, on January 1, 2021, there will be an Arabian Epic mountain bike race.

All the events are open to participants aged 16 to 60.

The Hatta region has been the focus of Dubai Sports Council’s attention since 2009, more so since His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced a AED 1.3 billion comprehensive development plan for Hatta in November 2016.

The package is aimed at enhancing the social and economic capabilities of the region, and to boost its appeal as a first-class sporting and eco-tourism destination.
