Race Packets

How do I receive my Race Packet?

Those with a UAE address will have their race pack couriered to the address you have listed in your Premier Online account (as of 15 December prior to the race). International Participants can choose:

  • pre-purchase (with your registration) the international courier option (paid)
  • type 'International' in Address Line 1 of your Premier Online account or have a non-UAE City/Country of Residence and your race pack will be marked 'Undeliverable'. See 'My Race Pack is Undeliverable, how do I get it?'
  • book a hotel room at the race hotel through the event registration page and have your race pack available upon check in
I have a UAE address but do not want my race pack couriered; how do I get it?

If you list a UAE address it will be couriered. If you have no address you may receive a reminder to update it but if by 15 December you still have no address listed, your race pack will be marked 'Undeliverable' - See 'My Race Pack is Undeliverable, what can I do?'

My Race Pack is an Undeliverable, what can I do?
Undeliverable Race Packs will not be dispatched and must be collected from the UPS Baggage Desk at the Race Village (see course map) either the day before (Thursday) Race Day from 5pm - 7pm only or on Race Day from 5am (until 6am) - there will be NO option to collect Race Packs any other time / place. Photo ID will be required to collect your Race Pack in person, for those collecting by proxy, a photocopy of the registered runner's ID (or Team Captain's ID) will have to be submitted.
I didn't receive my race pack; what now?

Race packs start shipping in January, please only contact us if you have not received your race pack* by 20 January. We make regular announcements about race pack shipping on our social media channels in January so please check there first. If for some reason you have not received your race pack by 30 January it will be marked 'Undeliverable'- See 'My Race Pack is Undeliverable, what can I do?'
*If a race pack cannot, for whatever reason, be delivered or is returned to us, or where an address / mobile number is incomplete, inaccurate or missing, the race pack will be marked as an 'Undeliverable' Race Pack.

How are Team Race Packs delivered?

What's in my Race Packet?
