The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that the Dubai Metro will now open later than usual in anticipation of Sunday's eagerly anticipated Dubai Run. In order to accommodate all of the competitors and onlookers, the metro will be open for longer hours on Sunday, from 3 a.m. to midnight.

Accessible Metro Stations for Participants

To facilitate easy access to the run, participants in the 5km race can utilize the World Trade Center Metro Station, while those taking part in the 10km race have the Emirates Towers Metro Station as their designated access point. This strategic arrangement aims to enhance the convenience of participants and ensure the smooth flow of the event.

In preparation for the Dubai Run, the RTA has outlined a comprehensive traffic plan. Alongside Sheikh Zayed Road, other vital streets in Dubai will be temporarily closed to traffic. This strategic move is aimed at creating a safe and efficient environment for the multitude of participants expected to partake in the run.

Dubai Run as the Finale of the Dubai Fitness Challenge

The Dubai Run holds a significant place as the grand finale of the month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge.

The Dubai Run transforms the iconic Sheikh Zayed Road into the world's largest running track, providing a unique and memorable experience for participants.

With its reputation as the world's largest free-fun run, the Dubai Run has garnered immense popularity. Last year's edition set a remarkable record with a staggering 193,000 participants, solidifying its status as the largest community fitness event globally. The event caters to individuals of all fitness levels, including runners, joggers, wheelers, and walkers, fostering a sense of community and shared commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
