With Ramadan upon us, May is the perfect time of year to get outdoors and active before the summer heat strikes. Whether you’re a total beginner or seasoned runner, the whole family is encouraged to take part in the Cigna Park Run, which will feature events of varying distances – 2.5km or 5km on Saturday, May 5.
Jon Norris from event organisers Race ME said, “We’re very excited and happy to announce one of the first Park Run concepts here in Dubai sponsored by Cigna health insurance. It’s a free timed fun run in a Dubai park that the whole family can participate in and the first of several planned runs this year and more to follow through 2019”.
A one-off registration fee of Dhs 100 gets you a souvenir technical t-shirt and a custom timing chip. Then you can participate as many times as you like through the year at a Cigna Park Run event – just let the Race ME know you’re coming.
Sponsoring the Dubai event is Cigna Corporation, a global health service company dedicated to helping people improve their health, well-being and sense of security. With a heritage of over 200 years, Cigna is committed to its promise of being together all the way in providing healthcare, clinical management and wellness programs to employers, individuals and governments around the world.

The company maintains a global sales capability in 30 countries and jurisdictions, employing over 40,000 people that service more than 95 million customer relationships throughout the world.
The Park Run concept has gone from strength-to-strength around the world and was only a matter of time before we saw them in Dubai. These events are designed for the whole family to participate and for all to be active and enjoy the sport. Whether you are walking the 2.5km or running the 5km for a personal best time, this is a very relaxed and friendly event to be a part of.
The Park Runs are an ideal place to enjoy your surrounding while engaging with a sport. Cigna insurance is no better partner to sponsor an event like this, promoting a healthier lifestyle for all.
