What are the Team Eligibility and Race Rules for the Dubai race?

TEAM ELIGIBILITY RULES

  1. Each team should consist of 10 participants, but the minimum number of participants per team is 6 - in this situation, 4 participants must run another lap each in order for the team to complete all 10 laps. No participant is permitted to run more than 2 laps.
  2. If any runners need to do 2 laps, these can NOT be consecutive due to the separate start / finish area.
  3. Participants are permitted to run in only one team at any given race and must be at least 18 years of age on the race date.
  4. A minimum of 6 individual participants in each team must be employed by the corporation or be a member of the professional organisation or learned society entering the race – verification of eligibility must be provided upon request.
  5. If a corporation has less than 20 employees or members, they are able to group together with one other corporation that also has less than 20 employees or members in order to form a team, but at least half of the participants in the team must be employees or members from the registered corporation.
  6. There are 3 different team categories in the race: Overall, Mixed and Team Eligibility Rules 1-4 apply to all 3 categories.
  7. All teams will be eligible for the Overall
  8. To be eligible for the Mixed category, a team will need to consist of at least 4 individual female participants, running a minimum of one lap each, and at least 1 male participant, running at least one lap – the rest of the team can be filled with either gender.
  9. To be eligible for the Female category, a team will need to consist of female participants only.
  10. The fastest 3 Overall teams, the fastest Mixed team and the fastest Female team will be awarded after the race has finished, but if the race needs to be stopped for any reason the awards will only be presented to teams that have completed at least 5 laps.

 

RACE RULES

  1. Every team must complete 10 laps of the designated one-mile (1.6km) course.
  2. Participants are required to display their race bib clearly throughout the race on the front of their t-shirt or vest as it contains their race timing chip and will need to be scanned prior to crossing the start line.
  3. Participants must start the race in their correct start wave, as per the team’s running order (1-10) assigned by the Team Captain, to ensure correct personal and team timing.
  4. Should participants wish to walk instead of run during their lap, always keep to the side of the course to prevent blocking other participants.
  5. After finishing a lap, participants must immediately move into the Finish Area, put a mask back on, and not stop until they have exited the area.

What will the event format be?

For the health and safety of all our participants and staff, we will be employing a Time Trial event format this year to reduce contact between team members and other teams, so there will be no team batons or race pens.

Here are some key things to note:

  • Every participant will be given a race bib by their team captain with a built-in timing chip.
  • There will be a separate start and finish line, with participants setting off on the one mile (1.61km) route in 10 separate start waves, one for each runner in a team.
  • Each wave will start at a pre-allocated time and will be called forward in socially distanced lines, pulsed out from the start line at fixed intervals.
  • A team’s 10 individual lap times will be added together to give them a 10-lap (10-mile) team time that will be displayed on the race leaderboard.
  • Each team should consist of 10 participants, but the minimum number of participants per team is 6 - in this situation, 4 participants must run a second lap each for the team to complete all 10 laps (see ‘Team Eligibility & Race Rules’ FAQ for full details).

What COVID-19 regulations do you have in place?

Although the Race Organiser can’t remove all risks associated with the virus due to the nature of the event, they have put measures in place and will be following enhanced procedures to reduce the risk as much as possible.

As COVID-19 regulations are frequently changing the Race Organiser will communicate details of the coronavirus mitigations closer to the event, however, as a minimum the Event will be in line with the Dubai's Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management updated precautionary measures for events, which includes mask wearing at all times unless engaged with a sports activity.

Other measures the Race Organisers are putting in place in addition to the Dubai's Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management updated precautionary measures include:

  • Maintaining appropriate social distancing whenever possible;
  • Providing hand sanitizer and masks around venue;
  • Health & Safety Officer approval of all preventive and precautious measures;
  • Creation of a Time Trial event format to reduce contact between team members and other team.

Will there be an After-Party?

After taking into consideration the health and safety of all our participants, guests, staff and stakeholders, we have made the decision not to host an ‘Official After Party’ this year that usually takes place in a third-party venue within the DIFC. However, participants will still be able to enjoy the ‘After-Party’ in the Race Village where there will be music and first-class hospitality for all participants, including a main meal, dessert and soft drinks as part of their entry package.

Can spectators come into the Race Village?

Spectators are not encouraged to attend in order to ensure all our participants can maintain social distancing where possible and there will be no hospitality packages (meals or soft drinks) available to purchase. However, everyone who needs to enter into the Race Village must adhere to our COVID-19 mitigation measures - See “What COVID-19 regulations do you have in place?” FAQ.
