Emir GCC Camels Race

Emir GCC Camels Race

The Al Far racetrack in Al Shahaniya is the place to be during April for the Emirs Camel Race. This race is an immensely popular attraction for tourists and Qataris alike. Camels and their riders compete for the prestigious Golden Sword as well as a number of other prizes and trophies. The ungainly stride of the camels and the shouting of their riders as they try to convince their steeds to run in a straight line is worth the drive to Al Shahaniya alone.
