Incredible excitement and determination were on display at Dubai’s iconic Sheikh Zayed Road this morning as H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, led more than 193,000 fitness enthusiasts of all ages, skills, and abilities in the fourth edition of Dubai Run, the world’s largest free fun run.

Dubai is the world’s only city to offer its citizens, residents, and visitors a month of all-inclusive, free fitness events, making it an even happier, healthier, and fitter city. More than 146,000 runners participated in the Run last year.

This year, over 193,000 participants from all walks of life joined the fourth edition of Dubai Run, transforming Sheikh Zayed Road, the city’s superhighway, into a giant running track.

The Run was flagged off from the starting line near the Museum of the Future, with participants running or walking at their own pace on the 5km and 10km routes. Both routes went through the heart of the city, passing by some of Dubai’s most recognisable landmarks.

the more experienced runners enjoyed the 10km route that followed Sheikh Zayed Road to the Dubai Canal, then took participants back towards the Dubai World Trade Centre before ending on Al Mustaqbal Street near the Dubai International Financial Centre.

Everyone can still enjoy the two free Fitness Villages at DP World Kite Beach and RTA Last Exit Al Khawaneej, the Fitness Hubs dotted across communities within Dubai as well as free fitness classes and events. For more information, visit www.dubaifitnesschallenge.com.
