About RaceME

Chris, Roy and Ian started RaceME many years ago when there were no organised triathlons in Dubai. Sadly Roy is no longer with us however his ambition and beliefs continue within RaceME & Tri Dubai to provide a safe environment for people to train & compete locally. Today Chris B and Paul V are responsible for RaceME which hosts six of the most popular triathlons in the UAE, including the acclaimed Dubai International Triathlon (DIT) which welcomes athletes from all over the world.

RaceME has been growing over the last six years and is now the leading sports event company in the Middle East. We pride ourselves on being the number one choice for hosting a sports event in or around Dubai.

With over 30 scheduled events for our upcoming season (2019-2020) there really is no better place to look for variety, value and perfection.
