THE RAMADAN NIGHT RUNS 2017 - ABU DHABI - DUBAI

The Ramadan Night Runs are being held at Yas Circuit in Abu Dhabi on Friday 2nd June and at Dubai Autodrome in Dubai on Friday 9th June. The races are individual (not a series) so you can choose to register for one or both. Both 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 Ramadan Night Run 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 race starts close to the 'race pits' and all finish at the impressive official finish lines for each race track.

 

All finishers of each Ramadan Night Run are rewarded at the finish line with a bespoke event medal, made specifically for The Ramadan Night Run's 2017. Additionally, those that finish competitively in the first 3 of their respective age groups also receive trophies, which are presented on completion of the evenings runs, together with a prize raffle in which participants that are present have the opportunity to win spot prizes.
