Future is orange: The runners line up for the start of the popular We Run DXB.

Downtown Dubai was flooded with more than 13,000 runners on Friday to kick off Nike’s We Run DXB, hailed as the fastest 10k race of the season.

The record number of participants more than doubled the total of last December’s edition which saw over 6,000 runners come out.

After conquering the 10k route, the crowd gathered for the Nikehosted post-race celebrations in Burj Park, where athletes received recovery treatments, sports massages and stretching sessions, along with enjoyable dance routines.

We Run DXB 2015 is part of the global Nike We Run Series hosted by 18 cities across Europe, Latin America and Asia and ranging in distances from 5K to a full marathon.

This year, We Run races will reach more than 140,000 runners worldwide.
