Ski Dubai will be hosting the 3rd annual Ice Warrior challenge on 16th November 2012, where participants will compete in sub-zero conditions and snow covered tertian to overcome a customized obstacle course that will be complex, unusual and above all, tremendously exciting and exhilarating. Modeled off the world’s toughest commando assault course, the Ice Warrior Challenge III will help raise money for the Beit Al Khair Society, and its efforts to provide humanitarian services for disadvantaged community members, especially children with disabilities.
The Ice Warrior Challenge III is open to all individuals aged 15 and above and will entail a customized course divided by 18 obstacles on the icy slopes of Ski Dubai. Designed to appeal to all skill and endurance levels, contestants will navigate the course in freezing -2 degree conditions and fight the elements to finish the course on top. Ski Dubai spent months developing the course and is set to offer some never before seen elements, including , rope trails, icy tunnel crawls, hill slides, zorbing and jumping on inflatable obstacles.
The winning contender will receive a 6 person stay at Kempinski worth AED 50,000 with runners up being awarded Fitness First membership, Spa vouchers, dinner at Pullman hotel and various other exciting prizes. All participants will also receive Ice Warrior t-shirts and a goodie bag stuffed with vouchers and giveaways courtesy of sponsors including Columbia, iFLY, Vox Cinemas and Mountain Dew and complimentary food and beverages from Carrefour.
“The Ice Warrior Challenge is a charitable competition like no other. It is the only competition which allows participants to test their stamina, will-power and agility by partaking in a race on alpine-inspired slopes in the middle of the desert. At Ski Dubai, we take our position as socially responsible corporate citizens very seriously and are committed to offering fun and unusual activities that inspire and encourage people to raise awareness for worthy initiatives. Now in its third year, this year’s competition will be conducted on an unprecedented level and we have pulled out all the stops to ensure that participants have an unforgettable experience,” commented Mr. Omar El Banna, Marketing and Sales Director, Majid Al Futtaim Leisure and Entertainment.
