It’s time to lace up your trainers and hit the track for the second race of Super Sports Run Series later this month.
More than 800 runners are expected to flock to the Track Golf Club at Meydan, Dubai on Friday November 30 and you can still join them ahead of the deadline on Tuesday November 27.
Whatever your ability, there are various distances to choose from, ranging from 3km to 10km.
For those who want to test themselves even further they can compete in the 10 Miler, a new category, which will see them run for 16km.
Age categories for the 16km and 10km are under 30, 30 to 39 years, 40 to 49 years, 50 years and over. The 5km is for under 19, 19 to 29 years, 30 to 39 years and 40 to 49 years and 50 years and over.
The 3km is aimed for junior runners with categories including under 9 years, 9 to 12 years, 13 to 15 years, 16 years and over.
There’s even more reason to sign up considering the Super Sports Run Series allows all athletes finishing the race a chance of winning an all-expenses paid trip to Thanyapura in Phuket, Thailand.
Previous editions of the community event, sanctioned by Dubai Sports Council, have proven to be a massive hit and Warren van der Merwe, race director of Super Sports Events, organisers of the run, is confident there will be a big turn-out this month.
“Race 1 attracted over 870 runners despite the hot and humid conditions so we are hoping for a similar number of runners to join us now that the mornings are becoming a bit cooler” he said.
“As it is National Day weekend we are celebrating living and running in the UAE by encouraging everyone to pin UAE flags to their running gear, caps or even face paint it on their bodies with prizes for the best dressed runner on the day” he added.
Entry costs Dh175 for adults and Dh125 ( juniors), while there will be a discount for families of three or more. Included in the fee is a finishers’ medal, T-shirt, photographs, electronic chip timer and refreshments.
