March 3rd 2015
The Mushrif Park entrance of Kawaneej rd has been spruced up by Dubai Municipality and as of last night large flower pots were placed at the layby where we all park our cars for the Monday night run just outside the gatehouse.
Therefore after discussions with the park staff and club members last night, we have made the decision to start all our future Monday night runs for the 2nd entrance (The same temporary entrance we used during the last summer) on the other side of Mushrif Park off Tripoli Street, see the map below. For the moment you will need to pay Dhs 10 to get in (or Dhs 5 if you are a good blagger) The club will be working with the parks management in the next week or so to try and get a permanent deal for the club to reduce this entry fee.
Once inside the gate, go straight ahead 100m turn right into the car park area and park up where we finish the Donut 10.
From Mirdif heading out towards the MCC/old Emirates rd, turn left at the traffic lights by the new Uptown school into Tripoli street, go straight to the 1st roundabout turn left and down the new rd by the large crocodile poster to the new gate house.
From the old Emirates Rd turn off at the MCC/Al Wakra turnoff, go straight at the next traffic lights by the new Uptown school into Tripoli street, go straight to the 1st roundabout turn left and down the new rd by the large crocodile poster to the new gate house.
