Howlin’Dog Trail Half-Marathon & 10km

March 8 @ 06:45 09:00 UTC+3

Howlin’Dog Trail Half-Marathon & 10km

Free yourself from Tarmac and join us for a relatively easy trail  Half-Marathon (21.1km).
(“Ease” is measured against our Hejaz 50. It is still trail, with ups and down and the kilometers are not much shorter when you leave the tarmac. )

Last year’s hugely popular Howlin’Dog is back. This year we will “only” be running the Half-Marathon version of this…an out and back on the plateaus just East of Thuwal.


  • This year’s run is not a race
  • Each year we run this, people will be able to collect a Dog Tag



  • This is beautiful open country mostly up on a plateau where sunrise and views are spectacular
  • This is only a one hour drive North of Jeddah…like going to KAUST
  • Course has it all, a little climbing, good road, short dunes area at the turnaround

Distances: Since this is an out and back you are welcome to run any distance you wish:

  • The full distance will be a relatively flatish trail 21km run that turns at 10.5k…water support will be provided near the 10km mark just before the turn; in 2018 everyone was able to make the full 21K
  • We will also mark the 5 k turn in case you want to run or trek a 10k.

Water stops:

  • km 5
  • km 10

Where (start/finish): We will be running South/North along the pylons from the start/finish point…kmz and pins will be provided for all who register.


  • No Full Marathon option this year. but we added a 10km. The Full Dog will be back in 2019-2020 season.
