My Dear Ladies,

On behalf of the UAE Athletics Federation, welcome to the 6th Annual Dubai Women’s Run.

Through your incredible support of this wonderful Run for Women we have grown tremendously and you have helped make the Dubai Women’s Run the Annual Event that it is today.

The UAE Athletics Federation is proud to organize this world-class event that not only is a platform to highlight some of the UAE’s best distance running talent, but for many women it serves as the entry point to becoming healthy and active individuals. 2016 will be another exciting year for the Dubai Women’s Run.

The Run will host both 5K and 10K Women showcasing some of the nation’s most talented and well-known distance runners.

Safety has always been the top priority for the UAE Athletics Federation, and we are grateful to have had the guidance of experts in the field as we planned for this year’s event. Each year, we work closely with the Municipality, RTA, Dubai police, Emergency medical service units and other agencies to establish safety procedures and plan for emergencies of all kinds. We feel confident knowing that this year’s preparation is not something new, but an extension of what we’ve always done to make the event safe for our participants, volunteers and spectators as they celebrate with us.

Race day will be here before you know it the Dubai Women’s Run will be filled with runners, joggers, walkers and lined with fans.
We hope you enjoy all the children’s play area, and the post run festivities for the 2016 event has to offer, We’ll see you at the start line of the Run!

Liesa Euton
Race Director
