The School’s holistic philosophy ensures that children’s all-round development needs are met through sport. Footballing skills aside, the Spanish Soccer School also teaches to kids the importance of sporting values, team spirit and togetherness.

Registration is still open for the Fujairah Run, taking place this Friday, November 23, being organised by the National Bank of Fujairah PJSC (NBF).

Taking place in the scenic emirate of Fujairah, the race is being held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah.

Now in its second year, the Fujairah Run is open to the public, attracting fitness enthusiasts and adventure-seekers alike across a range of distances and age groups, all set against Fujairah’s stunning mountain backdrop.

The runs include a 3km fun run, as well as 5km, 10km and a new 11km mountain trail route. There are male and female categories across junior and adult divisions for all distances.

A brand new addition to the event this year will be a new category for people of determination, which will be free entry for these participants.

Trophies and medals will be awarded to the top five winners across each class. In addition, great cash prizes totalling Dh245,000 will be awarded to UAE residents and nationals that come out on top in the 5km, 10km and 11km races.

Valid UAE identification cards will be required in order to receive the awards. Details regarding exact reward amounts can be found online.

Everyone who completes the run will receive a special medal for participation. The run also promises fun for the entire family, with a variety of entertaining activities split into four zones.

During the run, participants will experience Fujairah’s history and natural beauty with the run set against its spectacular sandy beaches and the rocky Hajar Mountains.

The 11km trail run will be a first not just for Fujairah but for the whole of the UAE, as it is the first competitive run route to take place directly through a mountain range.

Other prominent landmarks covered in the routes include a 17th century-fortress and the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the second largest in the country.

Commenting on the return of the event, Vince Cook, CEO of NBF, said: “We are thrilled to be back and I am personally looking forward to seeing our second NBF Fujairah Run get underway as we welcome back our running community who continue to seek the next challenge.

“We are grateful for this year’s returning runners who make this event a possibility and are excited for the new participants to experience not only the health and lifestyle benefits that running brings but, also most of all the chance to see first-hand the unique cultural heritage and historic scenery of Fujairah.

“I am particularly excited by the addition of two new and exhilarating run categories, the 11km mountain trail route, which will be a truly unique scenic experience for those competing, and one for people of determination who show great courage in their own lives on a daily basis.

“We look forward to welcoming runners of all ages and fitness levels and expect this event to witness higher participation than last year.”

Registration for the event is still open for individuals, families and businesses. Registration closes on Wednesday, November 21, at 23:59.
