The 34th Striders Half Marathon and 10 km run feature a fast mostly flat picturesque International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) measured course starting at Yas Waterworld, taking in the Yas Plaza Hotels Precinct, Yas Marina, Ferrari World, Yas Mall, Yas Gateway Park and the greater environs of Yas Island.
For the first time we are opening up the Half Marathon to team entries, giving the chance for teams of 4 to participate in this popular event. The Team Relay will will enable both corporate and social teams to compete in male only, female only and mixed categories.
The Striders will issue the Yas Waterworld park entry wristbands on race morning. Please come wearing your race bib and it will be marked at a station near the waterpark entry gates. After you receive your wristband you may enter Yas Waterworld to use the locker and toilet facilities. Each runner will only be given one wristband.
If you have pre-purchased Yas Waterworld supporter passes for friends and family, these can be collected either before or after the race from the station at the waterpark entry gate. Please collect these for your friends and family before the race start so they can access the park facilities while you are running.
Please remember that annual pass holders are not entitled to entry during the event for the breakfast and presentation. Annual pass holders only get access from 10:00 am during normal park opening hours.
Breakfast in Yas Waterworld will be available after the race (from 08:30 am) and is included for all runners and those who purchased extra breakfast packs/supporter passes.
