Residents and visitors reached the Expo site as early as 6am to participate in the second edition of Expo Run.
They had three different runs to choose from – 3km , 5km and 10km.
About 3,500 participants turned up to take part in the event donning fuchsia pink Expo 2020 Dubai shirts. There were runners of all ages, including babies strollers, children, parents and grandparents.
The run started at the Qatar Pavilion through winding routes that took participants past the three thematic pavilions and numerous country pavilions, before crossing the finishing line at Jubilee Park.
The runners then made their way to the Festival Garden arena for the awards ceremony and some complimentary refreshments. All the participants were given a one-day free pass to Expo 2020.
Participants were appreciative of the way the organisers hosted the event taking into account all the Covid-19 protocols.
