Dubai Desert Road Run is held several times a year, appealing to all elements of the running community - from first-time social runners to some of the best UAE based athletes.
Organised as a community event in which runners of all abilities are encouraged to participate, the Dubai Desert Road Run now features three distances; 10km, 5km, and 3km. All distances are run on private roads over a safe, traffic-free course. The start and finish for each Dubai Desert Road Run is at the heart of 'the village' in The Sevens stadium, some 40km off the Dubai coastline.
All finishers of the Dubai Desert Road Run are rewarded at the finish line with a bespoke event medal. Additionally, those that finish competitively in the first 3 of their respective age groups also receive trophies, which are presented on completion of the mornings runs, together with a prize raffle in which participants that are present have the opportunity to win spot prizes.
