City Swim, the open water swimming event is coming to Dubai once again as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge. Dubai will host the open water swimming event at Kite Beach on Saturday 27th October kicking off this year’s Dubai Fitness Challenge – the initiative to transform Dubai into the most active city in the world with a month-long calendar of events.

The organiser of City Swim invites everyone from beginners to experienced swimmers to join in what will be a unique and fun morning. For only AED110, swimmers can take part in one of four distances varying from 250 meters to 2,500 meters. Each swim will be suitably manned by expert kayakers who will be at hand every stroke of the way and friends and family are welcome to watch and support from the beach.

A spokesperson for the event said: “We’re delighted to be kicking off the Dubai Fitness Challenge once again with the City Swim Dubai. This event is all about participation and enjoying the magnificent location and ambience of Kite Beach in Jumeirah and we encourage as many swimmers, non-swimmers or those just looking for a fun morning on the beach to sign up.”
