Dive into the inaugural Dubai Canal Run
For fitness fans such as ourselves (don’t laugh), we’re always looking for new and exciting ways to burn off some of our well-earned burger belly.
We’ve often thought while jogging aimlessly around he park that there must be a better, more alluring way to keep trim than this. What’s that, you say? There’s a new race with some superb scenery for a backdrop? We’re in.
On Friday February 15, the first-ever Dubai Canal Run is taking place. Now this might sound like some sort of death-defying endeavour but we’re assured the run won’t actually be taking place in the canal (not this year, anyway) but instead you’ll be able to tackle a 10km course and really show your running mettle against hundreds of other competitors.
Should that sound like too much of a mission, you can always sign up for the 5km event (we won’t judge, honest), or you could go one better and run the 10km, pick the kids up and help them over the line in the 1km.
