Al Ain Men’s College hosted the 3rd Annual Jebel Hafeet Relay Challenge held at Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain on Wednesday, 23 February 2011.
Student running clubs, which promote health and fitness established at each of the HCT men’s colleges, are at the forefront of the event. The event challenged the participants’ fitness levels, will power and team cooperation levels.
The challenge was for a team of 6 students from each of the Higher Colleges of Technology to run up Jebel Hafeet Mountain as a relay team. Each runner was required to run a 2km leg with an average incline/decline of 100m.
The student teams that participated in the race were Al Ain Men’s College, Dubai Men’s College, Fujairah Men’s College, Ras Al Khaimah Men’s College and Sharjah Men’s College.
Dubai Men’s College successfully defended their title by winning the 2011 Challenge. All the teams thoroughly enjoyed the event and running clubs have grown system-wide in preparation for this event.
