There's a fun run around the Palm Jumeirah this weekend
Race you to the end of the Palm…
The Dubai Fitness Challenge is back, and as well as all the popular events returning, there’s some brand new ones to get your sweat on at.
This includes the first edition of the Nakheel Palm Run, which will see participants run around the world-famous Palm Jumeirah. The race takes place on Saturday, November 4 and is open to runners of all levels and even People of Determination.
Depending on your skill level, there are different distances you can choose from. Pick from 1km – which is great for children ages four to 15, or the 5km, 10km or 21.1km route (that’s half a marathon).
The race covers the crescent as well as the running track in Al Ittihad Park which is at the centre of The Palm’s trunk.
No one said it’s going to be easy, but the fact that you’ve tried is an achievement alone. Plus, you will be rewarded with some cool views of the Palm Jumeirah and of course, the Arabian Sea.
The winner will stand a chance to win Dhs21,000 in cash prize and will receive a medal.
