The Abu Dhabi Dash returns for another edition later this month where you and your colleagues can swap the office for the race track.
Taking place on October 23 at Khalifa Park, the event is open for people of all abilities and is an opportunity to put your team-work and communication skills to the test.
With the route just 15km in total, each individual must run 1.5km laps as you pit yourselves against other teams. Once you cross the finish line, the fun continues at the Activity Village. With a full programme consisting of different activities, demonstrations, live speakers and fun games, you won’t be short of options for entertainment.
Now in its third edition, the Abu Dhabi Dash has gone from strength to strength and Chris Corander from Interact Events, organisers of the Dash, expects a big number of participants.
“We are expecting around 500 people taking part altogether although there’s still time to sign up,” he said. “The Abu Dhabi Dash is now in its third year and it’s been growing every year.
“The whole idea about the Abu Dhabi Dash is to get inactive people active. We are targeting people who are not always necessarily into their fitness or going for 5k and 10km races. We are looking for people who do very little and hopefully this is something that they can latch on to and carry on.”
Team entry costs Dh5,695 which includes pre-event training session, access to the Activity village, race bag, giveaways, medal, company branded t-shirts and an opportunity to win some great prizes.
Registration closes on Thursday, October 18 and Corander believes there are many reasons on why people should still join.
“If you want to do something that is fun, and with colleagues and try a lot of different activities, then you should do this. It is easy, it is after work and great opportunity to have some fun with your colleagues.”
