The Abu Dhabi Sports Council in cooperation with the Spartan World Foundation has completed the World Spartan Championship that was held at the Liwa Desert, Moreeb Hill, in the Al Dhafra region from December 2-5, 2021.
The event was held on Friday in the Liwa Desert, Moreeb Hill, in the Al Dhafra region, organized by the Abu Dhabi Sports Council in partnership with the Spartan World Foundation. The race in the Middle East welcomed thousands of participants ranging from elite athletes to members of the community in the desert oasis of Liwa.
