Lace up for the Dubai Run 2020

Dubai Run 2020

Stretch your legs and get ready for a running experience like no other with Dubai Run 2020, the city’s biggest, free-to-enter, fun run. On 27 November, Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) 2020 is gearing up to turn the whole city into a personalised running track for all ages, abilities and fitness levels, welcoming one and all to celebrate their personal best – be it the first, fastest or farthest stretch.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first-time runner; simply looking to brush up on your endurance skills or eager to turn family members onto the joys of running – everyone is invited to run, jog or walk along any distance, any location, at any start time and with any running partner.

Soak in the fresh air while you run through your local neighbourhood, community park or your favourite running trail. Decide what time you begin, and invite your family or friends to dust off their trainers and get running with you.


Celebrating the city’s resilient spirit, Dubai Run has partnered with Dubai Cares to join the fundraising campaign for ‘Education Uninterrupted’ – tackling the impact of COVID-19 on the education of children and youth in the UAE. While the event remains free-to-enter, participants are invited to donate to the campaign.

DFC is committed to creating a safe environment for one and all to be physically active. Public health and safety will remain paramount throughout the programme, with individuals advised to ensure all runs strictly follow preventative regulations as issued by the Dubai government, including social distancing.

On the day, make sure to take a photo of yourself on your run, post it on your social media and tag @dubaifitnesschallenge and use #DubaiRun for your chance to win prizes worth AED500,000 in total value.
