Bahrain: Stage set for night endurance race

Bahrain Gulf Daily News

BAHRAIN Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation (Breef) completed their preparations for the 120-km Endurance Championship to be held on Friday starting at 5pm at the Bahrain International Endurance Village in Sakhir.

The championship, which is open to senior and junior riders, will be the sixth event of the season and the first to be held night following directives from Breef president Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa due to the rising temperature at this time of the year.

Registration is open until the day of the event while the veterinary tests will start on Friday at 2pm.

Shaikh Nasser approved the working committees of the race with Breef general secretary Ghalib Al Alawi chairing the judges committee.

The stewards committee includes Mahmood Abdulsaheb, Fahad Al Rumaihi and Mohammed Dadulla.

Dr Ibrahim Yousef was named head of the veterinary committee while Surender Babu of India was confirmed as commissioner for this committee.

The final event of the season will follow this race in the first week of May. The season kicked off with the Season Opening Championship in January, followed by the Kingdom Holding Championship in the same month, the Bahrain International Open Championship and the Prime Minister's Campionship, both held last month and His Majesty King Hamad's Cup earlier this month.
