7EmiratesRun in partnership with Al Jalila Foundation is a not-for-profit community sports event with the mission ‘Run for Help. Run for Health. Run for Fun.’
Help – run for a charitable cause
Health – run to promote health through sports

Participants of the annual cross-country endurance run traverse 497 kilometres across the 7 Emirates over the course of 7 consecutive days to raise funds for children with limb deformities or amputation under the slogan ‘get children back on their feet’.
7EmiratesRun was founded in 2010 by Wendelin Lauxen, holder of Guinness World Record for ‘Fastest time to complete a marathon on each of the 7 continents’, who ran 575 kilometers solo across the UAE in 12 days.
