Despite being held in the wee hours of the morning on the weekend, scores of people took part…

The Dubai Run 30X30 took place on Friday November 8, and saw no less than 70,000 people make their way to Sheikh Zayed Road to take part in the first-of-its-kind run down the seven-lane highway.

The event was open to people of any age, fitness or ability and was split between a 5km run and 10km run, which officially started at 6.45am on the day.

Here are some awesome images and videos taken on the day:
