Nakheel, the world-leading master developer, has concluded the first edition of Nakheel Palm Run, organised in partnership with Race ME.  

Taking place on Palm Jumeirah, the race witnessed immense enthusiasm from running devotees from all walks of life, who came together on Saturday morning, making Nakheel’s maiden race a resounding success. Over 1790 running aficionados participated in the race, including participation from People of Determination. Nakheel received over 1700 registrations.

The race included distances of 21.1km, 10km, and 5km for those above the age of 16 and a 1km course for children and teenagers aged 4 to 15, offering the perfect opportunity for those looking to tick off their 30x30 for the day, during the ongoing Dubai Fitness Challenge 2023.

 The race also witnessed participation from Nakheel’s employees who came in full team spirit to extend their support for the company’s new community initiative. Nakheel also organised onsite competitions like the plank challenge, on the spot dancing for adults and head-banging competition for the young ones keeping participants and spectators thoroughly engaged.

Participants enjoyed the stunning views of Palm Jumeirah with the racing route covering The Crescent, the semi-circular road which forms the outer edge of Palm Jumeirah as well as the running track in Al Ittihad Park which is at the centre of the Palm’s trunk.
