Santa Run Dubai

Tis the time to be jolly…

And healthy!

So why not combine two of your favourite things in ONE event this December.

As winter makes its way to the deserts of Dubai, and the festive seasons kicks off in the city too – we often leave our health in the process.

With the excitement of gift shopping, Thanksgiving feasting, Santa Claus waiting…there’s barely any time to get in shape for Christmas.

Which is why this Santa themed event could not have come at a better time!

Dubai’s FIRST ever Santa Claus fun run is happening less than 11 days from now, and it’s more than just a run.

It’s a reason to be festive even when you’re miles and miles away from home.

Because what better way to celebrate Christmas than to become the jolly man himself, Santa Claus, and celebrate with other health-seeking participants in Dubai.

So grab your running shoes, your Santa Claus outfit and head on over to Dubai Festival City.

Not only will the spirit of Christmas give you the push you need to complete the 2.5 or 5 KM race, but the best dressed Santa Claus even gets to go home with a prize!

Now…that’s a first.

While Christmas in Dubai may not be traditional, you’ll still be able to get into the festive season while overlooking the gorgeous backdrops of iconic Dubai buildings – including the Dubai Creek, Dubai’s skyline and more.

Participants who want to celebrate Christmas a little different this year – this is your chance.

Upon registration, you will receive a FREE Santa t-shirt, hat and beard…basically the essentials to becoming the man himself.

But the jolly spirit will have to come from you, so make sure to pack some excitement and a big ol’ smile.
