Dubai Sports Council has announced an exclusive new event for ladies, the four-part Dubai Women’s Running Challenge, which will take participants to four unique locations across Dubai.
Organized in collaboration with Dubai Municipality under the slogan “It is good to compete in the World’s Coolest Winter”,
Registration is open now for all four stages of the Challenge on the Hopasports website, and participants can choose from three distances: 10 km, 5 km, and 2.5 km.
Participants in the 10km run will be divided into five age groups – 12-17, 18-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60-99, while the participants in the 5km race will be divided into two age groups – 12-17 and 18-99. In the 2.5km race, there will be four age groups: 5-9, 10-14, 15-17, and 18-99.
To encourage and honor participants, Dubai Sports Council has designed a unique set of medals for the Dubai Women’s Running Challenge. The medals for each stage have been designed to represent the landscape of that particular stage and, when put together, the four medals will spell “Dubai”.
The Dubai Women’s Running Challenge joins a growing list of initiatives and events launched by the Dubai Sports Council to promote sports and a physically active lifestyle among all segments of the community, especially among women and children.
