Headsweats is very proud to sponsor Scott Ragsdale as he takes on the Naseba Seven, a challenge to complete one iron-distance triathlon every day for seven consecutive days across the seven Emirates of the UAE. The event, which will take place from November 25 through December 1, 2011, was born out of an ambition to inspire others and is about a normal guy attempting to achieve something physically exceptional.
In 2010 Ragsdale’s goal was to swim the English Channel – and he made it happen. This year, his aim is to see if he can stay consistent and focused enough to get into the best physical shape of his life and complete the Naseba Seven. The challenge coincides with Ragsdale’s 40th birthday as well as the UAE’s 40th anniversary and will finish in Abu Dhabi around the National Day celebrations.
“Ideally, people who hear about my challenge will reflect on themselves; reflect on their own goals and dreams,” states Ragsdale on Naseba Seven’s website. “A dream or goal means nothing if you don’t make the necessary preparation and effort and go after it – and go after it until the end.”
Headsweats will also be the official headwear sponsor for Super Sports’ Skins Super Run Series for 2011 and 2012. Super Sports is one of the largest Dubai based companies offering Professional Sports Coaching and Sports Event Management Services to residents in and around Dubai. Their aim is to introduce sports and sporting events as fun, exciting and social to all interested juniors and adults of various abilities.
The Skins Super Run Series is open to all juniors and adults, novices and professionals. The Series, which takes place at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai, runs from October 2011 through May 2012 and includes an 8km race and a 4km Fun Run/Walk.
