Start your day in a healthy way by joining the Wellman Walk for Health in Dubai next weekend, with registration still open.
On Friday, May 12 from 06:30, hundreds will flock to the Mamzar Beach tracks and you can play your part in making it a success ahead of Thursday’s deadline.
Open to all ages and abilities, you will walk a total distance of 3km as organisers Team Sports UAE aim to send out a message on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
“This is the first Wellman Walk for Health organised in Dubai and the aim of it is pretty simple; we want to create the awareness of how priceless health is to people’s lives,” said Meher Un Nissa, events director of Team Sports UAE.
“The UAE organises many aquathlon, triathlon and running events throughout the year and there are a lot of fitness clubs. “But there are also people who are suffering from diabetes and heart problems and we wanted to have something that is just a walk because it’s something that everyone does on a daily basis. No equipment is required and it’s something that people of all ages and abilities can do.”
Upon completion of the 3km course, participants can also have a free BMI check up, while the fun doesn’t stop there with plenty of entertainment in the race village.
“This is more than just walk. Not only is it about raising awareness, but we hope that people who do take part will be even more encouraged to take up more sports,” said Un Nissa.
“The walk is not timed and it’s a great opportunity to start the day on a healthy note with your friends and family in a fantastic place at Mamzar Beach in Dubai.”
Entry for the walk, which is under the supervision of Dubai Sports Council, costs Dh50 per person, which includes a medal for all finishers and refreshments. There will also be a chance to win some prizes in the raffle draw.
“As the Walk for Heath falls on a Friday, we want as many people to sign up and show their support and it will be an enjoyable way to start the weekend,” said Un Nissa.
She added: “The other events that we have held have been well received and we hope there will be another big turn-out on Friday morning.”
