Put on your training shoes and get ready for the first ever edition of Mai Dubai City Half Marathon, part of Dubai Fitness Challenge 2019, the citywide fitness initiative running from October 18 to November 16. Taking place on Friday October 25 at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the marathon offers participants the chance to stretch their legs and break a sweat in one of the world’s most photographed financial districts, surrounded by the picturesque skyline of downtown Dubai.
Fitness star and Instagram athlete Joe Wicks, globally known as ‘The Body Coach’, is set to compete in the half marathon, and will also flag off the event’s 2.5km community run. Registration is still open until Wednesday for the smaller distance, which is ideal for individuals looking to try out the ‘marathon experience’ in a light, fun and enjoyable atmosphere, alongside friends and family. It also provides the perfect opportunity for those looking to lock in their 30 minutes of physical activity as part of the 30x30 challenge.
After completing the race, runners will receive a Mai Dubai City Half Marathon branded t-shirt along with a unique participation medal. Runners can also listen to entertaining melodies, or tuck into complimentary treats from Pret A Manger, London Dairy Bistro and Keventeers within a dedicated Race Village in DIFC. For a little zen after the run, as participants, along with their families and friends, can enjoy free yoga sessions as well as fun workshops for little ones.
