Sponsored: There are awesome prizes up for the grabs for the fastest runners…

If you’re looking for one final challenge over the final weekend of the Dubai Fitness Challenge 2019, then you should consider signing up for the M1 Run – a vertical race taking place in Media One Hotel.

Taking place on the last day of the Dubai Fitness Challenge on Saturday November 16, the M1 Run is a vertical staircase run starting from the ground floor of Media One Hotel all the way to the 42nd floor. It includes a 1.2km run up the seven floors of the car parking space followed by a climb of 33 floors to the 42nd floor.

How many stairs does that equate to? Oh, just about 700.

It’s priced at Dhs99 (excluding VAT) to enter, and there are three categories that you will fall under when you register.

There’s the individual category for people in the age group of 18 to 39 and another category for the 40 plus age group – both of which are sub divided into male and female.

There’s even a team category (4 people) you can sign up for if you don’t want to have a go at it alone with no restrictions on age or gender.

So, what do you stand to win?

Apart from stronger lower-body muscles, participants will walk away with a goodie bag and a medal.

There are also cash prizes and Media One vouchers up for grabs for the fastest timed runners in each category.

The fastest female and male in the 18 to 39 age group category will each walk away with Dhs1500, second place will win Dhs750 and third place Dhs250.

The fastest female and male in the 40 plus age group category will walk away with vouchers that they can spend in Media One Hotel. First place will win vouchers worth Dhs1000, second place Dhs500 and third place Dhs250.

The fastest team will win a Dhs5000 cash prize to share.
