Dubai Fitness Challenges - The FAAStest in UAE and Ice Warrior II Challenge at Ski Dubai

I'll be brief until I get some more information, but now that it's officially winter here in Dubai it seems that there's great races and challenges springing up all over the place. Here's some sketchy details of a couple that have tickled my fancy.

The FAAStest in the UAE by Puma

Puma have launched a Jamaican-inspired new range of trainers, which claim to cut the frills and focus on speed. There's three breeds which make up the Puma Faas Collection, the 500 for the long distance runner, the 300 for the all-round runner and the 250 for the workout runner. Here's a link to the Puma store so you can take a look.,en,sc.html

To promote these new shoes, Puma are looking for the FAAStest in the UAE by holding a range of events all over the country. I've got no idea what's involved, but these events are happening at these times and places:
  • Friday 28th October 2011, between 3pm-7pm in JBR car park
  • Sunday 30th October 2011, between 11am-3pm in Dubai Media City quadrangle
  • Wednesday 2nd November 2011, between 11am-3pm in Dubai Internet City food court
  • Saturday 5th November 2011, between 3pm-7pm in Safa Park
As soon as I find out anything more I'll update this post.

Ice Warrior II Challenge at Ski Dubai

Again, I'm not sure what's involved, but I've been promised that it's going to be 18 gruelling obstacles on the snow in the -4c temperature of Ski Dubai. It's happening on Saturday 19th November 2011. Registration costs AED 250 and is limited to the first 100 applicants.
