Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority showed support for the upcoming Dubai Run 30×30 by opening metro stations at 4:30am on Friday, November 8.

“To ensure the arrival of participants to the #DubaiRUN race, we changed the operating hours of #DubaiMetro on Friday, November 8, 2019, with the first trip starting at 4.30am. You can reach the start line from the World Trade Centre Metro Station,” the RTA tweeted.

Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) will showcase a record breaking Dubai Run 30×30, as the 14-lane highway road will be a running track for residents and visitors.

The free for all event will kick off along Sheikh Zayed Road before passing the country’s world class structures on both 5km and 10km routes.

In line with this, the 5km fun run is open to all ages, while the timed 10km run is for running enthusiasts aging 18 years and above who can finish the course in 80 minutes.
