Back for its fourth edition, Dubai Run 2022 is taking over Sheikh Zayed Road on Sunday, November 20. The event is part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge.
Last year, 146,000 runners, joggers, and walkers took part in the Dubai Run which broke a world record for the largest number of participants in a community fitness event.
Runners of all ages and fitness abilities can register and enjoy a once-a-year chance to run along Sheikh Zayed Road. The fourth edition of Dubai Run offers runners two routes: a 10km route and a 5km route.
This fun run is perhaps one of the most iconic in the world, passing some of the most beloved landmarks the city is home to. You and your loved ones can jog passed the Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera, and Burj Khalifa, and if you’re a seasoned runner, you will zoom all the way to the gorgeous Dubai Canal.
Running with the whole family? The 5km route is the way to go due to its flat terrain which makes it ideal for runners of every level. For the more experienced runner, the 10km route takes you to the Dubai Canal, looping back again towards the World Trade Centre and ending at DIFC.
Participants must register and collect their official numbered bib from a number of convenient locations.
Bib distribution is open during normal mall opening hours on Thursday 17, Friday 18 and Saturday 19 November.
Dubai Metro will operate from 3:30am and will be the easiest way to travel to and from Dubai Run. Runners taking the metro should have a NOL card with Dh15 credit to use transport.
If you are running the 5km route, head for Emirates Towers or DIFC metro stations to start your run. If you are on the 10km route, head for World Trade Centre or Max stations.
For those who prefer to drive, there is limited parking available near all metro stations. Alternatively, park at one of the Dubai World Trade Centre car parks for the 10km route, or at Dubai Mall for the 5km route where participants can make their way to the start line using Dubai Metro.
