The Dubai Women’s Triathlon conducted today saw a proactive participation from women of all nationalities.

Dubai Women’s Triathlon brought the streets of Jumeirah to life early on Friday morning before coming to a close at Dubai Ladies Club.
Mona Al Marri, Chairperson of the Board of Directors and Managing Director of Dubai Women’s Establishment (DWE), awarded the winners. The Dubai Women’s Triathlon is the first event of its kind in the Middle East held exclusively for ladies, organised by the Women’s Sports Committee of Dubai Sports Council in collaboration with Dubai Ladies Club.
The triathlon began early Friday morning, with the swimming competition taking place along the Jumeriah coastline behind Dubai Ladies Club within a private and secure environment. The contestants then got cycled along a route starting from the club’s main gates, taking them from the intersection of Al Urouba Road to the intersection of Umm Al Sheif Road, before beginning the running segment of the race on designated tracks along Jumeirah Road until the finish line at Dubai Ladies Club.
