This fun run is perhaps one of the most iconic in the world, passing some of the most beloved landmarks the city is home to. You and your loved ones can jog passed the Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera, and Burj Khalifa, and if you’re a seasoned runner, you will zoom all the way to the gorgeous Dubai Canal.

Running with the whole family? The 5km route is the way to go due to its flat terrain which makes it ideal for runners of every level. For the more experienced runner, the 10km route takes you to the Dubai Canal, looping back again towards the World Trade Centre and ending at DIFC.
