Some of international football’s biggest stars came together in Dubai this weekend for a friendly match that took place on the pitches at Dubai Sports World, inside the airconditioned halls of Dubai World Trade Centre as part of Dubai Fitness Challenge 30 x 30.
The city’s superhighway, Sheikh Zayed Road, was transformed into a giant running track for Dubai Run, as participants of all ages and abilities ran and walked at their own pace on 5km and 10km routes.
Dubai can redefine the sport of padel and reach the summit of global padel destinations, according to Juan Lebron, the current world number one and the headline player of this week’s Dubai Padel Cup – a month-long padel fiesta being held as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge.
Launched last year, Dubai Ride has become a firm favourite on the Dubai Fitness Challenge calendar of activities, attracting citizens, residents and visitors to join together and cycle past some of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks.
Sheikh Hamdan said on Instagram, Join me in the Dubai Run, one of the most prominent activities of the Dubai Fitness Challenge on November 26th… Sheikh Zayed Road will turn into a track for competition and excellence...With your participation, we will make Dubai the most active city in the world.”
This year Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) 2021 was joined by a record 1.65 million participants who participated in thousands of free fitness events, activities, and classes across the city between October 29 to November 27.
