Camel Races?

By caf

We have guests staying at the moment who are keen to see a camel race.  I believe that some go on out towards Dukhan on a Friday morning, just wondered if anyone has any other info?  Thanks.

Today I was late for race.

Policemen said there is same event and the races are going to be there every day up to 6 of April. ( don't know it is true)

2 races a day - morning don't know the time, afternoon 2-4 pm.

I was late, but any way there was hundreds of camels.

Its worth see.

I´ve been there today, there will be big race event on 27th march 2011. Anyway, many camels training around and if you have a drive through stables you can ask some people to make pictures or have a ride.

I don't know why this is so hard for anyone to do:

I spent on several occasions hours looking for information on specific times and schedules for the camel races. Nothing is posted online by any organization - fine - but also anyone who does go and successfully catch the races don't report back as to when this all was... very strange.

Anyways... I went! And I caught them, and I also asked a local as to when this all transpired, regularly:

FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS

AL-SHANAEEHAH (go towards Dukhan, it's on the way, you'll see a signboard that says "Camel Race")

1pm-3pm (Definitely starts at 1pm, but may end later)

I have only gone Fridays, so I can't vouch for Saturdays.

Enjoy. For goodness sake.

Best

Ps. Big race coming up next week I think.

Take the road towards Dukhan. You'll see the camel stables on the right (almost a small city), and you can spot the top of the race track viewing stands just beyond them. Call 487-2028 to find out when the races will take place. It's interesting to go out there even if there are no races, as the owners are all exercizing their camels during off days....hundreds of them. The race track is like ten kilometers long, so most of it is out of sight. Well worth the trip. Good luck, and enjoy!

I dont think it will be Friday morning, because every thing is closed for until Friday prayers. Probably after the Friday Prayers in the morning.. Yes the place is in Shaniya.

the race-track is at Al-Shehanniya which is only half an hour out of Doha, you have head towards Dukhan and veer off to the right when you see signs towards Oryx sanctuary.

not sure when the races are held though.

camel race ??????????

try your luck....i been there twice, no luck.

alternatively, try the doha-al khor highway.....some big landcruisers / prados are racing like camel everyday....no speed limit, no respect of the traffic rules....

i think it is much more exciting then the real camel......racing.

have fun in qatar.
