Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, on Tuesday evening shared a post on Twitter, urging Dubai residents to participate in the Dubai Run 30x30 taking place this Friday.

"DUBAI RUN 30X30. ON SHEIKH ZAYED ROAD. FRI 8 NOV 2019. 6AM CHECK-IN. @DXBFitChallenge," the Crown Prince tweeted.

For the first time ever, Dubai's Sheikh Zayed Road will turn into a running track on Friday, November 8, 2019, as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) 2019.

With the aim of fostering a healthy community spirit, the free-to-attend event includes a 5km fun run and a 10km run, with both routes starting and ending at Dubai World Trade Centre.

This marks the first time that people have been allowed to run on a section of the 14-lane highway, giving participants a unique, on-foot perspective of iconic sights as they come together to demonstrate their commitment to an active lifestyle and DFC's vision to make Dubai the most active city in the world.

The 5km fun run is open to all ages, abilities and fitness levels - also accommodating strollers and wheelchairs to be as inclusive as possible for families and People of Determination. It also serves as a fun day out for schools as well as government and corporate groups, who are encouraged to sign up and attend the run with all their friends and colleagues.

The 10km run has been created for running enthusiasts who are 18 years of age or older - promising to be a memorable route where they can aim to beat their personal best.
