The number of participants in the Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) has doubled in four years, a top official has said.

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, said: “In its first edition in 2017, the number of participants for DFC was 786,000. Last year, more than 1.5 million people across the city took part in the initiative, with over 20,000 participating in the first edition of the iconic Dubai Ride in 2020 on Sheikh Zayed Road.

He said the DFC is one of the largest city-wide fitness challenges in the world. “Dubai is the only city in the world that offers its citizens, residents and visitors thousands of free live and virtual fitness and wellness events, classes and activities for a full 30 days - no matter their age, ability, or fitness level.

“This year’s edition has also seen a more diverse and inclusive range of fitness activities and events than ever before, with a particular focus on encouraging participants to get outdoors to complete their 30 minutes of daily activity for 30 days,” he added.
