Six free 28-day training programmes have been launched by the Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) ahead of its citywide fun run on November 27.

The sessions will be curated by leading coaches and athletes from the region including Manal Rostom, Tania Lolla Kaddoura, Abdullah bin Hajjar, Luke Mathews, Lee Ryan and Luke Gaffney.

The programmes, ahead of 'Dubai Run', will feature step-by-step fitness guides for all levels — regardless of one's fitness levels. It will also be available on the Dubai Run website

"The DFC is one of the most anticipated events on the city’s calendar. It is a true testament to Dubai’s ever-growing dedication to physical and mental well-being. The Dubai Run 2020 marks another milestone in achieving this ambition, calling upon all citizens, residents and visitors to unite in spirit and boost their collective physical activity," said Saeed Hareb, General Secretary of Dubai Sports Council.

"Dubai Run will unite every individual in an unbeatable community atmosphere, championing inclusion for people of all abilities and fitness levels — from the young to the young at heart, first-time runners to seasoned pros, and to those achieving personal goals," said Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE).

"DFC saw a spectacular display of community spirit and enthusiasm last year as the city’s main artery, Sheikh Zayed Road, was taken over by more than 70,000 runners. This year, we are excited to witness another spectacle of true determination as the whole city transforms into the biggest running track for all," he added.

Dubai runs to care for all

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.
