What is the Pasta Party?
The Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon Pasta Party is an annual event held the evening before the race itself that is open to everyone (who purchases a ticket) to attend. Carbohydrate 'loading' is a popular pre-race activity and this normally takes the form of a pasta party before a race. Entertainment and special guests are sometimes included and it's a great opportunity for runners to meet other runners and even the elite athletes too! And of course there's lots of fabulous food too, not just pasta! Grape and hops is included in the ticket price for those who wish.
