Events to check out this May!
1. THE NORTH FACE NIGHT ROCK RUN May 1st
Building on the success of this race from last year, The North Face have now teamed up with Urban Ultra to open the event up to more runners. Starting at 7pm (and therefore in darkness!) this is defintely a unique challenge as runners negotiate their way through dirt tracks, wadis and tough ridges of Wadi Shawkah in Ras Al Khaimah.
Runners can choose between a 5, 10 or 15km course and entry includes an after party with campfire BBQ and live DJ to conclude what sounds to be a very fun event.
Entry costs Dhs200 and tickets can be purchased from premieronline.com.

4. Splurge on an experience of spectaculour views from a hot air balloon
Okay so this isn't the cheapest of activities to tick off your bucket list but taking a balloon ride over the desert landscape isn't your everyday experience. Located in the area of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve which is home to many indigenous species like Oryx and Gazelles this is likely to be a very special day out indeed.
Price for a single adult is Dhs 995. For more information and to make a booking visit the Balloon Adventures website.
5. Take a splash at Yas Waterworld
What better way to take some respite for the ever increasing heat than a day out to a Water Park. If you think this is a good choice then Yas Waterworld in Abu Dhabi probably hosts what you're after as it spans the size of 15 football pitches and has no fewer than 43 rides, slides and attractions. For you board sport enthusiasts you might be interested to know that this includes Bubbles Barrel, which hosts three metre high waves and has the world’s largest surfable sheet wave for flowboards and bodyboards. Pretty cool!
