Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) is gearing up to motivate everyone to renew their commitment to a fitter future with the launch of its sixth edition, running from October 29 until November 27 2022. The event is initiative launched by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai to promote healthy lifestyle in the Emirate.
People of all ages and levels of ability are being challenged to complete 30 minutes of exercise every day for 30 days, along with a packed calendar of activities and events, said organisers in a press release.
A number of free activities will be taking place throughout the month, from yoga to HIIT (high intensity interval training) classes.
The aim of the event will be to “bring friends, families, colleagues and communities together to improve their health and well-being and enjoy the outdoors”, according to the Dubai Media Office.
This year, more than one million residents and visitors are expected to take part in the Dubai Fitness Challenge, and those interested are encouraged to start setting fitness and health goals now.
Last year, 1,650,000 participants took part in the initiative, up by 10 per cent from 2020 and representing nearly half of the population of Dubai.
DFC 2022 will see the return of Dubai Ride on November 6, one of its flagship events - offering families, recreational cyclists and cycling enthusiasts the opportunity to take part in the unique experience of riding past Dubai’s iconic landmarks on Sheikh Zayed Road.
Dubai Run will take over Sheikh Zayed Road on November 20.
More information about the line-up and details of how to register for this year’s challenge will be available over the coming weeks.
