Dubai is rapidly becoming the fitness capital of the world. Aside from the influx of professional athletes, fitness influencers and all the great and good in between, the city’s pre-existing residents have also caught the fitness bug.
Very soon, all of Dubai will lace up their trainers and get moving. Lasting for one month, the Dubai Fitness Challenge will see various parts of the city offer group exercises and events in which people can participate to switch to a more active lifestyle. Here are all the details.
What is the Dubai Fitness Challenge?
Now in its sixth year, the Dubai Fitness Challenge sets a simple yet effective task – complete 30 minutes of activity each day for 30 days. That’s why you’ll also often see it referred to as the 30×30 challenge.
It was first introduced in 2017 and features city-wide fitness events and free workouts. The ultimate goal is to inspire residents to adopt a new fitness-focused mindset and take responsibility for their own health.
When will the Dubai Fitness Challenge start?
This year, the challenge will be held from October 29 to November 27.
When are the Dubai Run and Dubai Ride?
One of the main events, the Dubai Ride, which is a cycling challenge, will be held on November 6.
In 2021, participants had the option to go for a 4km family ride or a 14km loop around Sheikh Zayed Road.
