The event was the 4th edition of Dubai Run. People of every age and level of fitness took part in the running event in Dubai. The roads and transport authorities had announced the rerouting of the vehicles before the event. The routes for the runners were divided into two sections to choose from as per their limits. As per their suitabilities for the more experienced and advanced runners, there was a 10km running course. On the other hand, there was a 5km route suitable for families and all kinds of fitness levels and children.
Both routes were directed through different locations. The 5km route was set to pass by Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera, followed by Burj Khalifa. This running course was very flat compared to the 10km course, which made it an ideal choice for people of older ages and children. The 10km route was set to follow by the Sheikh Zayed Road to the Dubai Canal which then returned to the Trade Centre before ending on Al Mustaqbal Street near DIFC. The course was comparatively longer and challenging, suitable for experienced runners with better fitness abilities.
The Dubai Run initiative was led by the crown prince of Dubai, Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum. He uploaded several memorable photographs from the event on his official social media handle. He led the event gracefully and thanked all the runners for helping make history together.
