UAE:
3rd National Day Camel Marathon in Dubai on Sunday to Celebrate 46th National Day
Att.Editors: The following item is from the Emirates News Agency (WAM)

DUBAI,Dec 1 (WAM) - The third edition of the National Day Camel Marathon, organised by the Hamdan bin Mohammed Heritage Centre (HHC), in co-operation with the Dubai Camel Racing Club, will celebrate the 46th United Arab Emirates (UAE) National Day on Sunday, December 3, 2017, at Dubai International Endurance City, Saih Al Salam.

The Camel Marathon, organised as part of the centre’s extensive efforts to safeguard the intangible cultural heritage of the UAE, is part of the ongoing 46th National Day celebrations.

Open to UAE citizens above 18 years of age, the National Day Camel Marathon is set to begin early morning on Sunday.

Souad Ibrahim Darwish, Director of Championships at HHC, said, "Camel racing is one of the most enduring and centuries-old traditional sports in the UAE. Last year, we renamed the race the National Day Camel Marathon, since it coincides with the UAE's National Day celebrations. This year, we intend to build upon the success of last year with more participants expected."

The inaugural Camel Marathon saw the participation of 72 UAE nationals between the ages of 18 and 50. This number grew to 100 in the second year, and it is expected to increase further this year. (WAM) (END/2017)
