About the Race

Mantra X is an Adventure Race series made up of 10 races over the 2021/ 2022 season and is open to individual competitors and teams of 4. Competitors will earn points at each event to decide who the championship winners are at the end of the series. Mantra X Hatta Adventures is the first race in the series with subsequent races taking place around the UAE. Using a map and compass competitors will have to navigate across mountains, through water and over various types of terrain using mountain biking, trail running, mountaineering, swimming and paddling to find various check points. Competitors can enter as individuals or teams of 4 and are allowed 1 person as a support crew who will meet them at transition areas and assist them for the next leg of the race.

Download the competitors event briefing for all the rules and information about the race, transitions and different legs. The official and secret competitor’s handbook will be given to competitors on race day an hour before the race start during the competitors lockdown period, which will include the specific race details and check point co-ordinates. Organizers will be arranging some orienteering and map reading workshops as well as a ropes course and first aid talk in the final month leading up to the race for competitors who are inexperienced adventure racers but want to take on a new challenge.
