Ladies get your running shoes on and get moving in 2021!

The Dubai Women Running Challenge brought to you by the Dubai Sports Council is taking place in January and February of 2021. The four part run series takes in four unique locations across the beautiful city of Dubai.

Run past the lions and the giraffes at the Dubai Safari Park on the 16th of January in either the 10km, 5km or the 2.5km Run.

**Show your race bib after the race and receive 50% off park entry to enjoy the sights of Dubai Safari Park at a slight slower pace!**

On the 23rd January the run series heads to Palm Jumeirah where runners will take in the Dubai Skyline and the sights from The Palm.

Run through the light installations of Dubai Garden Glow on Thursday the 28th of January. This night-time run around the Zabeel Gardens will take place from 9pm onwards.

Take in the culture and heritage of the historical area of Al Seef and soak up the atmosphere of the Dubai Creek with this early morning run. The run takes in the historic area and the new modern area along the creek side on the 6th of February.

All the runs are suitable for beginners and the serious runners in the community. They all offer a 10km, 5km and 2.5km Run, with individual winners from each race announced with great prizes from Zabeel Ladies Club and Under Armour for all the winners.

**Register for all four runs and take advantage of the 'combo' discount!**
