A December climbing event is likely to be attended by a number of people with a property in the UAE.

Outdoor Adventure Dubai will commence as of December 17th to the 19th – held at the new Plaza at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

It will witness two climbers – who are said to be the best speed climbers the world over – race as part of the emirates' first outdoor adventure sports event.

Those taking part are Makysym Stienkovyy from the Ukraine and Anna Stenkovaya from Russia.

Trixee Loh, senior vice president at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), said: "Coming face-to-face with an international line-up of some of the best sports climbers and a world record holding rally driver … will ignite a passion for an outdoor lifestyle among visitors."

She also highlighted that visitors are given the opportunity to try before they buy, emphasising they can actually use the facilities on the event days.

Both of the named climbers are the International Federation of Sport Climbing's world number three and number two competitors, respectively.
