The Dubai Desert Road Run – Join The Dubai Running Event Dubbed ‘The Summer Scorcher’


Do you like running? Do you enjoy being social? If so this local Dubai race could be perfect for you.

The Dubai Desert Road Run actually takes place several times throughout the year. The event is set up this way to allow runners to track their fitness and progress at each new run they enter, and it is a great incentive for you if your goal is to increase your fitness and stamina. It also adds a social element to the run.

Details Of The Dubai Desert Road Run


The race starts from The Sevens Stadium, Al Ain Road in Dubai

There is a 3km fun run option, or a 10km option for more serious runners. The race is split into age categories, and there are trophies for the winners in each age category of the 10km run. There are awards for the first 3 males and the first 3 females who finish in the 3km run (regardless of age).

Who Is The Dubai Desert Race For?

The event is set up to be social and enjoyable, with a community spirit among the runners, although it is also still a ‘serious’ race for those wishing to compete. Because there are two options, the 3km fun run or the 10km run, this makes it suitable for social runners and experienced athletes alike.

All finishers in both levels of the run receive a medal to mark their achievement!

When Is The Next Dubai Desert Road Run?

The next run is in June and is entitled ‘The Summer Scorcher’. There is still time left to join and train for the run if you get your skates on.
