With the starting line near the yet-to-open Museum of Future, runners will pass some of Dubai’s signature landmarks including Emirates Towers and Downtown Dubai before crossing the finishing line at Al Mustaqbal Street near the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Runners on the 10km route will also pass by The Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard.

In preparation for the event, warm-up sessions are taking place across the city in October and November.

These include The Dubai Academic City Run, Dubai South Run, CBD Run on The Palm and the Dubai Design District Run as well as a special run for Halloween on October 30 and the Expo 2020 Dubai Run on November 19.
