On June 16, Dubai will hold the regular long-distance Dubai Desert Road Run. Everyone is able to participate in the event, starting from the beginners, who never participated in the official events, to the best athletes of the UAE, who participate in the international competitions on the permanent basis.
The participants of the event are able to choose from 3 and 10 km distances. Both tracks are located on roads closed for the traffic, which offer great running surface. Both of the tracks will start and end on the territory of The Sevens stadium.
There will be several prized for the participants of both races for both men and woman, as well as for the runners from the different age groups (first three winning places for each of the groups).
The participation fee is 90 AED for 3 km, and 130 AED for 10 km. The guests are able to come to the stadium or watch the race on any of the streets of the track. All the tickets can be bought at http://www.dubairunning.com. In 5 days before the beginning of the race, the prices will become higher. After purchasing the ticket one has to register for the event.
