Endurance sports lovers can get back in the groove with Ironstar Indoor Triathlon Series’ third race of the season.

With five races across five summer months, the series aims to keep triathletes active during a time of the year when the heat takes away the option for outdoor activities.

By holding their triathlons indoors, Ironstar are giving athletes plenty of reason to keep swimming, running and biking during the summer.

The fourth race takes place three weeks later on August 11.

TIME: From 1pm

Another new adventure is headed to Dubai with the Rush-A-Way Summer Challenge, set to physically and mentally test participating teams in a variety of ways.

Each challenge will offer a different test, with aspects like teamwork, stamina, strategy, communication skills, quick thinking and speed required.

With it being summer and the heat ratcheted up, this edition will take place at indoor locations, meaning there’s nothing to sweat as you zoom through the challenge.

Teams will earn points based on how fast they complete each challenge, and those that don’t finish in the given time will receive a penalty.

The regular registration fee, which is available until July 31, is Dh630 for teams of three and Dh840 for teams of four. After that, the last minute registration will cost Dh660 for teams of three and Dh880 for teams of four.

Included in the fee is an international buffet lunch and gift vouchers.

TIME: From 8am*
