Where to Stay

Tips for Staying in Ras Al Khaimah

Staying in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) before the race has received positive feedback from runners in previous years. However, it’s essential to book your accommodation early as hotels tend to fill up quickly. February is a peak season for tourism in RAK, and hotels are typically overbooked during the race weekend. Last-minute bookings may leave you without a place to stay.

Make a Weekend of It

Consider extending your stay to enjoy a weekend in RAK. This could potentially secure you a better hotel deal, and the surrounding areas offer delightful explorations this time of year. The border to a neighboring country is less than an hour away, and the nearby Musandam Peninsula is a popular spot for boat trips and dolphin watching.
