As the Dubai Fitness Challenge entered its second week, close to 200 Dubai Duty Free and The Irish Village employees turned out to participate in a 5km ‘Fun Run’ on Sunday morning at the Dubai Design District.

The event took place by the waterfront of the Dubai Design District Marine Transport Station, with Yousef Al Khalid, Vice President for HR Service Delivery, leading the runners.

Some participants were accompanied by their children and spouses with the top five male and female finishers being awarded special prizes by Al Khalid.

Commenting on the success of the second corporate activity, Al Khalid said: “We are delighted to see a large turnout from Dubai Duty Free and The Irish Village for this running event, with some staff bringing their families as well.

“Indeed, it was a fun run and a fun day was had by all.”
