Run The Track is a number of runs being held at Dubai Autodrome. The races are individual (not a series) so you can choose to register for one or more. All runs are suitable for all elements of the running community - from first time social runners, to the best UAE based athletes.
Organised as a community event in which runners of all abilities are encouraged to participate, each Run The Track Event features three distances; 10km, 5km and 3km. All of the distances are run on 'the race track', private roads over a safe, traffic free course. Each run starts close to the 'race pits' and all distances finish at the impressive official chequered line in front of the grandstand.
All finishers of each Run The Track run are rewarded at the finish line with a bespoke event medal, made specifically for The Run The Track Series 2017/18. Additionally, those that finish competitively in the first 3 of their respective age groups also receive trophies, which are presented on completion of the days runs, together with a prize raffle in which participants that are present have the opportunity to win spot prizes.
