  • The Electric Run Recharged will see participants run on a glimmering 5k course.

    Although there’s some time to go until the Electric Run Recharged returns, sign up this month and you could win a chance to fly your friend into Abu Dhabi from anywhere in the world to take part too.

    The world’s brightest night run returns to the UAE on February 24 at Yas Gateway Park, Abu Dhabi with an updated race format and new features.

    Thousands flocked to Zabeel Park, Dubai for their inaugural edition last year and given the success of that, one lucky runner’s experience will be even more special when he or she is joined by a friend or family member.

    Anyone who purchases a ticket before January 29, will be entered into a draw to win a complimentary return flight to Abu Dhabi for the iconic event.

    Those who take to the course can look forward to an unforgettable experience, going through a journey combined with light and sound. Once you cross the finish line, the fun doesn’t stop there with the glow-in-the-dark party.

    For the first time, runners will have an opportunity to run through the dusk on the glimmering 5k course before the crowds arrive as part of their ‘Power Hour’ from 18:30.

    “The Abu Dhabi event is back by popular demand and Electric Run Recharge’s next stop is set to be the most exciting one to date with everything we’ve got planned out for it,” said David Sanderson, race director from event organisers Fast Track.

    “The second edition will debut the ‘Power Hour’, specially designed courselands that highlight Yas Gateway Park’s distinct landscape and most importantly unparalleled live entertainment for everyone.”

    Sign up: Ticket prices for the run range from Dh150 to Dh245.

    With the Electric Run Recharged the only 5k in the region to have themed courselands in the brightly-lit course, Daman ActiveLife are confident big numbers will flock to Yas Gateway.

    “The Electric Run presented by Daman’s ActiveLife is a unique race, which contributes to improving the overall health and well-being of local communities by inspiring them to enjoy vitality,” said Daman’s CEO, Dr Michael Bitzer. “Additionally, this event is an ideal platform for individuals of all ages and physical abilities to engage in group exercise in spectacular surroundings.”

    Adding to the dimension of the experience, there will be the Electroband – an illuminating LED bracelet that syncs with various soundtracks throughout several courselands and with the beats of other runners.

    Ticket prices vary between Dh150 and Dh245 with team and individual categories to choose from.
