I highly recommend everyone to visit an authentic and colorful place: Camel Racing. Getting on the local bus is somehow possible, but we did not deal with these transfers at 7 in the morning and took a taxi. From Dubai Marina to Uber, the cost of a one-way trip is ~ 110 aed. But everything is free there. Yes, and go more than 40 km. Horse racing takes place on weekends (Thu-Sat) from 5:30 in the morning approximately. We were on Friday, arrived there by 8 in the morning. And there was a full house. Runs every 15 minutes for 30 camels.

Description:

Every country has its own traditions and heritage, especially when it comes to sports. And in the United Arab Emirates, one of the most important sports is camel racing. With its centuries-old history and culture, camel racing is an extremely well-loved and intimate part of Arab culture.

The race is fought on traditional thoroughbred racing camels that are native and distinct to UAE. In fact, camel racing still enjoys the patronage of the rulers and leaders of the UAE. Not just the royalty, even the common citizens of UAE are fans of the sport.

It was with the intention of preserving this heritage that the Dubai Camel Racing Club (DCRC) was founded in 2008. UAE has a large number of camel racing enthusiasts and there are at least fifteen race tracks spread across the country. However, most of them are located on the outskirts of cities. But the beauty of camel racing is that it is not just popular locally within the UAE but has an international following. In the last two decades, the UAE Camel Racing Federation has taken massive efforts to ensure that camel racing spreads far and wide across the world. It isn’t just a popular sport in the UAE but in several European countries like Germany as well as in the continent of Australia. The current goal is to make this sport popular across the globe, a dream that has been made possible under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of UAE “May Allah Protect Him”, and His Brother His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai “May Allah Save Him”, and His Excellency Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.


Today, Dubai has grown to be a cosmopolitan city with a distinct culture that is both ethnic and modern. And, so is camel racing. It was to combine these two distinct features with the aim of preserving a centuries-old tradition that the Dubai Camel Racing Club was established.

DCRC runs under the Government of Dubai and is helping hand in hand with the government to help preserve the culture and heritage of our fathers and forefathers. Its primary mission is to make the sport popular among youth by updating it according to the times and harnessing it with modern technology by adopting international practices and research into camel breeding, health-care, and racing. Camel racing is one of the most likely and active ways in which you get generation in UAE can interact with their ancient heritage and DCRC hopes one day to achieve the same.
