KUWAIT CITY, Nov 6: Camel enthusiasts in Kuwait are gearing up for the third Camel Race, which will take place next Saturday, with widespread participation from camel owners across the country.

Khashman Al-Dhafiri, the Deputy Chairman of the Organizing Committee for this special event, has revealed that preparations are well underway for the third edition of the Camel Race. The race will kick off in two stages on Saturday morning, covering a distance of 23 kilometers for the first race and 15 kilometers for the second and final race.
