The night before last years event we had some serious storms in Dubai which caused extensive flooding and placed a lot of doubt in peoples minds on whether the race would go ahead or not, fortunately we still managed to keep the race on. It was difficult to keep everyone informed of what was going on so this year we would urge everyone to join our facebook page so that you can keep updated with any last minute announcements.


Have a great Race everyone. MIRDIF MILERS

We meet at 1855 every Monday at the Main gate to Mushrif Park for a choice of run between 5K, 9K and 13K, all levels are welcome. (You will need a smile and AED 3 for park entry).
