Dubai sets new world record

Dubai has received another entry in the Guinness Book of World Records – the emirate has acquired the highest running track in the world. The 335 metre long Sky Track is located on the 43rd floor of the Residences at Wasl1, Za’abeel, 157 metres above the ground.

Runners who decide to try it out will be in for a surreal experience as it practically merges with the clouds. It also offers views of Dubai’s major landmarks and the Persian Gulf.

As you know, Dubai will host the annual Dubai Fitness Challenge from 28 October to 26 November 2023. Active lifestyle enthusiasts can look forward to a host of masterclasses and free classes in different areas of the city. All Dubai residents are invited to devote 30 minutes a day to sport for 30 days.

The fitness festival will include its flagship events – the Dubai Run Marathon and Dubai Ride cycle race, as well as the new Dubai Stand-Up Paddle event at Hatta. As per tradition, the DP World Kite Beach Fitness Village will return to the beach, while a cycling centre will open at RTA Mushrif Park.

Meraas’ Run and Ride Central will be the ultimate destination for running and cycling enthusiasts. In total, participants will enjoy over 600 free fitness sessions and more than 400 classes throughout the month. The initiative will involve 25 community fitness centres across the city.

The Dubai Ride, sponsored by DP World, will take place on 12 November with the support of the RTA. Cyclists will ride along the closed Sheikh Zayed Highway, Dubai’s main thoroughfare, past the emirate’s main attractions.

On 26 November, novice, family and professional runners will gather for the Dubai Run Marathon, which will also take place along Sheikh Zayed Highway. Last year, more than 193,000 runners and walkers took part in the marathon.
