The run is open to all ages and abilities…

Are you a keen runner or just fancy setting yourself a fitness challenge? Take part in the Dubai Run, which returns to the city on Friday, November 27. On this day, the whole city will become a running track, in the biggest citywide ‘fun run’.

The run comes as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge which kicks off on October 30 and runs until November 30. The initiative encourages Dubai residents and visitors to take part in 30 minutes of exercise every day for 30 days.

People of any age and ability are invited to join the Dubai run, at a time of your choosing, whether you’re looking to do a 2km, 5km or even a 10km distance. Areas included to take part in the run are Jebel Ali to Jumeirah; Downtown to Dubai Creek, and plenty more.

You’ll need to register to take part in the run, which had over 70,000 participants in 2019. Rather than having everyone running in one place, organizers want to treat the whole city as a running track – so pick your neighbourhood and off you go.

To really help you kickstart your fitness and build yourself up for the run, when you register to take part, you’ll have access to six special 28-day training programmes. These have been created by a number of professional coaches and athletes in the region.

During the month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge 2020, a huge number of free fitness classes, workshops and activities will be going on all over the city. Whether you’re a runner, swimmer or just want to kickstart your fitness journey, there’s something for everyone.

The fitness movement was launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai. Affectionately known as ‘Faz’, he’s often seen doing a whole host of adrenaline-filled activities.
