The event's third edition ran from October 18 to November 16 and was the biggest one yet.

It involved a historic public run on Dubai's iconic Sheikh Zayed Road and parts of the city being turned into an open gym

The Dubai Fitness Challenge, which was launched in 2017 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council for Dubai Government, encourages Dubai residents to do at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.
