Over 226,000 participants, led by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, took part in the fifth edition of Dubai Run, concluding the Dubai Fitness Challenge 2023.
The event, presented by Mai Dubai, established itself as the world’s largest community fun run, surpassing last year’s numbers. Sheikh Hamdan, along with UAE astronauts Dr. Sultan Alneyadi and Hazzaa Almansoori, participated in the 10 km run.
The event showcased unity, with fellow Expedition 69 crew members joining from the International Space Station. The run featured two routes, a challenging 10 km on Sheikh Zayed Road and a family-friendly 5 km Downtown course.
Dubai Run, a highlight of the Dubai Fitness Challenge, transformed into a vibrant festival of fitness and entertainment, creating enduring memories. Mai Dubai water bottles used during the run were recycled for sustainable waste management.
The success of the event reflects Dubai’s commitment to a healthy, inclusive community.
