Join our first installment of our new Full Moon Hiking Series.
Every month, starting September 2018, we will go hiking under the Moonlight, as close as possible to the Full Moon.
Throughout the season we will offer 4 level of difficulties. Each individual hike may include 2 options only.
- Green: for Beginners also suitable for children ( aged 7 or above with a parent). Duration: 1 to 2h. With limited incline.
- Blue: for Intermediate. Duration: 1h30 to 2h30. With some incline. It might be suitable for Teenagers.
- Red: for Advanced. Duration: 2h to 3h. With lots of incline.
- Black: for Experts. Duration: 3h+. Sometimes it doesn’t go up.
Newcomers will be asked to join the easiest of the option offered (usually Green or Blue).
If you are an experienced athlete and can provide justifications of your level by sending us an email ( info@HejazUltra.org), you might be able to join straight into a more advanced level. The Hejaz Ultra committee will inform you of their final decision ).
On September 28th 2018, we will hike about 75minutes away from central Jeddah – the exact location will be shared with registered participants.
We will have two groups: GREEN and BLUE.
- the Green group will hike 7.5km.
- the Blue group will hike 10.5km.
Both groups will start hiking from the same place, but at a different pace ( speed). The two groups will actually start on the same course for the first 2.5km and then take different routes.
- A small backpack (or hydration pack ) with 1 liter of water per person will be required ( not provided by the Organizers). Snacks optional.
- A smartphone with the apps MAPS.ME pre-downloaded ( there will be no 3G signal at the start line ) and BlueTooth capable ( to receive the map), and with fully loaded battery.
- A head torch ( or hand torch ) with RED LIGHT mode. you will not be allowed to start the hike if your torch doesn’t have a RedLight mode. The Red Light helps preserve your night vision and will make the hike more enjoyable for all. A dozen Head Torches with RedLight are available for lease from the organizers at the time or registration.
- 22 SAR if you bring your own HeadTorch with a RedLight Mode.
- 30 SAR if you want to lease a HeadTorch with a RedLight Mode.
