SIXTY riders are set for the Kingdom Endurance Horseride Championship scheduled for tomorrow at the Bahrain International Endurance Village in Sakir.

The event, comprising a 80-km race for women and 120-km race for juniors, is being organised by the Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation (Breef) and is part of Bahrain's National Day and His Majesty King Hamad's accession to the throne celebrations.

The women's race, sponsored by Saudi Arabia's Kingdom Holding Company, is divided into three stages with 15 riders in the fray.

The race consists of two stages of 30 kms and a final stage of 20 kms.

Among the participants in the 80-km race will be Bahrain's Royal Endurance Team members Manal Fakhrawi and Sumaya Jassim, Layal Abdulaziz of Al Khaldiya Stable, Shaikha Najla bint Salman Al Khalifa of Ahmed Al Fateh Stable, Huda Aryan of Saar Equestrian School and a team from Saudi Arabia's Kingdom Stable.

Thirty riders are in the fray for the 120-km juniors race, split into 30 kms for the first two stages, 25 kms for the third, 20 kms for the fourth and 15 kms for the fifth.
