Nothing’s impossible in Dubai, not even running in sub-zero temperatures at the height of summer.
Ski Dubai is bringing back the popular DXB Snow Run on June 11, so you can cool off while burning some calories.
Yes, breaking into cold sweat takes on a whole new meaning with this fun race! There’s only two days left for interested runners to register, so freeze your spots by booking here.
Tickets cost AED 169 per person and the Snow Run is open to everyone between the ages of 15 and 70.
The chilly race is the result of the indoor ski park at Mall of the Emirates and the Dubai Sports Council teaming up to keep residents in fighting fit shape during the summer months while fighting the heat.
Switch out your running shorts for toasty thermal tights and puffer vests as this race will see you sprint around the snowy slopes of Ski Dubai in – 4°Celsius. Brrr!
You can take your pick from the standard 3km race, which will see you cut three loops of Ski Dubai, or if you’re a seasoned runner and the cold never bothered you anyway, then the advanced 5km race is right up your alley.
Getting cold feet? Here’s an incentive – every runner that makes it to the frosty finish line will take home a commemorative DXB Snow Run medal as a reward for their perseverance (and thick skin, literally).
The 5km race starts at 6:30am and the 3km race will follow shortly at 7:30am. The coolest part besides all the snow? Every runner will be timed individually, so the only person you’re in competition with is yourself!
