One of the main features unique to this championship is that it is inspired by one aspect of the quest to provide daily food. Salukis or greyhounds can run up to 65 kilometres per hour.
The Salukis were always part of the UAE’s past environment as well as training them for hunting.
The greyhounds start running in a race towards the prey and are led to the finish line. The results of the championship are based on the speed of the Salukis and the number of rounds.
