Driving Directions

- The entrance to the venue is on Emirates Road (611) northbound, between Um Suqeim Road and Al Ain Road (66)

- Look out for the DWC signs to guide you along the way 


DWCDXB17 will be an official qualifying event (individual 10km category only) for the OCR World Championships, 2018. This is great news for anyone who wishes to compete in an international event against the world’s best OCR athletes. This opportunity will not affect those Warriors who are entering DWCDXB17 for fun, your experience will remain the same as all other DWC events.  

Participants will have the opportunity to qualify for either the OCRWC ‘PRO’ division or the ‘AGE GROUP’ divisions. It is extremely important that ALL Warriors select the correct heat accordingly. 

The first 2 heats are reserved solely for ‘PRO’ athletes and have ‘PRO’ written next to the heat time. These are the only heats that will count towards the DWC DXB17 ‘Individual competition’ (male & female) and qualifying for the OCRWC 'PRO' division.

730am = OCRWC PRO Qualifier & DWC DXB17 competition (individuals only)
745am = OCRWC PRO Qualifier & DWC DXB17 competition (individuals only)

A ‘PRO’ athlete would be considered as anyone with under the following times for a 10km sand based obstacle course;
Male = <65mins
Female = <95mins

You may only enter the ‘PRO’ heats if you are genuinely a high-level athlete who fits within the above criteria. We may request you to show proof of previous results to support your place in the ‘PRO’ heats. Individual participants in all other heats will be eligible to qualify for the ‘AGE GROUP’ divisions for the OCRWC. 

The top 5 males & females from the ‘PRO’ heats and from each 'AGE GROUP' will qualify for the OCRWC 2018. If you are not in the ‘PRO’ heats, your result will be automatically sorted into the correct age group at the completion of the event. The age groups will be 16-17, 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50+.

Teams may enter any heat throughout the day excluding the ‘PRO’ heats. However, if a team would like to compete in the DWC DXB17 'Team competition’ for a place on the podium, they must enter any Ultimate (10km) heat up until and including the 1030am heat. 

Good luck Warriors!
