Middlesex University Dubai Competes in Nike 2013 Wadi Bih Run

 

Our wonderful, multinational, male & female, MDX long distance running team successfully completed the amazing Nike 2013 WADI BIH Run!

Sponsored by Nike, Middlesex athletics team gained some well-noted attention as the youngest and the only University team in the WADI BIH Run this year!

72 kilometers of rough terrain, the sun and altitude were challenging but our team kept going. 184 Relay Teams joined the Run this year.  Our provisional completion time was 7 hours and 30 minutes! We were behind many professional, semi-professional and readier teams, but we finished this super way through amazing Omani nature ahead of many other teams, too.

Well done, team! Thanks to the Organizers for an amazing job done! Thanks, Coach Misho for all the support for the runners during the Run!!!
