The Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) is bringing the biggest citywide fun run to residents and visitors with Dubai Run next month.
On November 27, the entire city will become a personalised running track for all ages, abilities and fitness levels, giving everyone exciting new reasons to join the flagship fitness movement launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai.
Everyone from young adults, teenagers, families, older residents and people of determination are invited to celebrate their new personal best with the Dubai Run - be it the first, fastest or farthest stretch.
From Jebel Ali to Jumeirah; Downtown to Dubai Creek - the track is yours to choose in any community or neighbourhood.
You can run, jog or walk along your preferred route and have fun.
Registration is now open on www.dubairun.com.
To help first-time and routine runners put their best foot forward for the Dubai Run, DFC is launching six 28-day training programmes that have been specially curated by some of the region’s leading professional coaches and athletes.
Coaches include Manal Rostom, Tania Lolla Kaddoura, Abdullah bin Hajjar, Luke Mathews, Lee Ryan and Luke Gaffney.
The training programmes will be available on the Dubai Run website and will provide expert support and mentoring to get you ready.
The sessions feature a variety of step-by-step fitness guides for all levels - regardless of whether you’re looking to kick-start your running journey with a 2km course, master a 5km run or take on a 10km challenge.
Celebrating the city’s resilient spirit, Dubai Run has partnered with Dubai Cares to support students whose lives have been disrupted by this year’s challenges. While the event remains free-to-enter, participants are invited to support “Education Uninterrupted”, a nationwide fundraising campaign that tackles the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the education of children and youth in the UAE.
DFC is committed to creating a safe environment for everyone to be physically active. Public health and safety will remain paramount throughout the programme, with individuals advised to ensure all runs strictly follow preventative regulations as issued by the Dubai government, including social distancing.
