  • What next?

    Simple! Fill in the booking form and send it together with a photo, a copy of your passport and UAE Residence Visa (if appllicable) and the Registration Fee to:

    Gulf for Good,
    P.O. Box 506006,
    Dubai,
    U.A.E.

    An acknowledgement and receipt will be sent by return.

  • What happens if all places are filled by the time I apply?

    Your booking form and registration fee will be immediately sent back to you unless you want to sign up for another challenge in the same year.

  • How safe is it?

    Each group is accompanied by a Gulf for Good representative. Experienced professional companies are used for our events with medical back-up and police escorts provided where appropriate. None of the challenges involve “dangerous activities” unless specifically mentioned.

  • What will the day be like?

    On average each day's activity lasts for about 6 to 8 hours with a break for lunch.

    Your main luggage will be transported for you and available each evening. You will therefore only need to carry a day pack with all your essential items, lunch and water.

    All events are intended to offer a challenge. You should therefore try to train on a mixture of terrain and include some hills and rough tracks where possible. Please see the individual challenge training guidelines for more information.

    The fitter you are the more you will enjoy it!

  • What is provided for me?

    Flights, accommodation, meals, refreshments and guides are all provided. You will be responsible for airport taxes, visas, travel insurance (provided if requested), vaccinations, transport to Dubai airport and personal equipment (ie. walking boots, backpacks etc). We send a kit list outlining everything you need together with visa and vaccinations requirements.
