Final race of endurance season is set

OP riders from Bahrain and the GCC will take part in the last endurance race of the season, organised by the Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation (Breef), on Wednesday starting at midnight at the Bahrain International Endurance Village in Sakhir.

The race, to be held under the patronage of Breef president Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, will be over 100 kms and divided into four stages. The first two stages will be over 30 kms each, 25 kms for the third and 15 kms for the fourth.

Shaikh Nasser welcomed the participants from across the Gulf and wished them the very best in the championship. The awarding ceremony will take place right after the race.

Meanwhile, the Breef will be assisted in organising the race by officials from the Oman Equestrian Federation (OEF) who are expected to arrive in the Kingdom on Tuesday.

The Omani team delegation will be headed by OEF president Mohammed bin Isa Al Fairooz and will include eight riders.
