The WME team joined thousands gathered in Dubai, Dubai World Trade Center to be precise, in the early hours of Friday to take part in Dubai Run 30X30 with only one goal in mind: fitness.
A section of Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai – one of the busiest roads in the world – was closed for the event as fitness enthusiasts from all nationalities and ages converged at Dubai World Trade Centre for the run. Dubai Run 30×30, which included a 5km fun run and 10km race, kicked off at 6:30am.
Spearheaded by Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, the run was part of the third edition of the month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge that challenges people to do 30 minutes of exercise for 30 days from October 18 to November 16.
Shaikh Hamdan said, “Today marks a milestone in our mission to make Dubai the most active city in the world — together as one society. I commend the enthusiasm and energy of our people and I am proud of how the people of Dubai — across ages, nationalities and abilities — have come together to create such an inspiring event.
“Congratulations to all those who accepted the challenge. I am confident that you will encourage even more to join over the coming days and make DFC 2019 our most successful edition yet.”
Congratulations to all that took part in the run!
