His Excellency Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, was delighted to see the turnout for the first leg of the NAS Night Challenge on Thursday night and is looking forward to seeing even bigger numbers at the starting line for the second leg.

More than 1,000 obstacle-race enthusiasts, representing 52 different nationalities, took part in the Team events of the NAS Night Challenge, which has been a popular part of the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament over the past three years. A greater number of participants are expected to take part in the second leg of the Challenge, which is for individuals, on May 16.

“We are happy to see so many people from so many different nationalities taking part in the NAS Night Challenge,” said HE Al Marri. “Their enthusiasm and team spirit is really contagious and I am confident we are going to see much larger numbers in the second leg this coming Thursday.

“The NAS Night Challenge fulfils one of the top objectives of the NAS Sports Tournament – to attract participants from all segments of our diverse community and encourage them to embrace a physically active lifestyle. The opportunity to challenge yourself and overcome these obstacles – 14 obstacles across a 4km course for this year – is a great incentive for people to participate.”
