Coaches include Manal Rostom, Tania Lolla Kaddoura, Abdullah bin Hajjar, Luke Mathews, Lee Ryan and Luke Gaffney.
The training programmes will be available on the Dubai Run website and provide expert support and mentoring to get you ready to run Dubai.
The programmes feature a variety of step-by-step fitness guides for all levels - regardless of whether you’re looking to kick-start your running journey with a 2km course, mastering a 5km run or taking on a 10km challenge.
DFC is committed to creating a safe environment for 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.
The free-to-attend event will see runners set off along Sheikh Zayed Road before passing a number of the city’s iconic buildings on both the 5km or 10km routes.
