This weekend, Dubai Run takes over Sheikh Zayed Road, therefore no cars are allowed
People of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate in the largest free fun run in the world, which will begin with a supercar procession led by Dubai Police.
This weekend, there will be a run on the busiest highway in the United Arab Emirates, which in Dubai will become the largest running track in the world. On Sunday, November 26, the Sheikh Zayed Road will be cleared of cars as runners take over the roadway for the Dubai Run, which will mark the conclusion of the month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge.
Thousands of people will sign up for the free run, regardless of their running ability or age. There are two route options available for the Dubai Run, both of which pass by some of the most famous sites in the city:
5 km Downtown stretch: This route starts at the Museum of the Future on Sheikh Zayed Road, travels past the Dubai Opera and Burj Khalifa, and ends close to Dubai Mall.
The 10 km Sheikh Zayed Road route is intended for seasoned runners seeking a more strenuous course. It begins at the Museum of the Future, travels across the bridge over the Dubai Canal, turns around on Sheikh Zayed Road, and ends next to the DIFC Gate.
A supercar display by the Dubai Police will precede the run.
It costs nothing to register for either route. By selecting their preferred route and registering on the website, participants may guarantee their spot.
A QR code will be sent upon registration; this code is necessary to retrieve bibs. Pickup is scheduled at Run and Ride Central in One Central through November 25. Participants in the event will not be permitted to participate without a bib.
Dubai Run set a new record for participation last year with 193,000 runners, joggers, walkers, and wheelchair users, making it the world's largest community fitness event.
