 Obstacle Race 


10 MARCH 2018

The name Shwaiman comes from a pure bred, Arabic horse that was once gifted by the governor of Bahrain Sheikh Hamad Bin Issa to HH Sheikh Zayed The First of the UAE. Legend has it that Shwaiman was a beautiful and magnificent horse with unmatched strength, power and speed. 

Under the umbrella of ‘Jasadak Amana’, the UAE Armed Forces National Service community health initiative, and under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Nahyan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Sports Council, we present to you the ‘Shwaiman’ Obstacle Course event.
