On Sunday, November 5, Dubai Festival City will transform into a running paradise for all the fierce and fabulous women out there. If you’re itching to lace up those sneakers and join the action, now is the time to get in on the action. Let me guide you through all the amazing details you need to know before you sign up.
A Decade Of Empowerment: 10th Edition
This year, the Women’s Run is celebrating a monumental milestone – its 10th edition. But there’s more to it than just a run; it’s all about sustainability. The theme of the event revolves around sustainable practices. What does that mean for you? Well, hold on to your reusable water bottle because the entire event will be powered by solar and human-generated energy! Yes, you read that right. The Dubai Women’s Run Village and the main stage will be all about green energy.
Eco-Friendly Goodies For All
Not only is the event sustainable in terms of energy, but every little detail has been thought through. The race-day kit, which includes t-shirts, bags, and route maps, is designed with the environment in mind. They’re all reusable, and they’ve even used eco-solvent ink and recycled paper for good measure. How cool is that?
Choose Your Challenge: 3km, 5km, Or 10km
If you’re feeling up for a challenge, you’ve got options. Choose from the 3km, 5km, or 10km race categories. And here’s the thrilling part: the top three winners in both the 5km and 10km races will get to pocket some cash prizes!
