Swimmer Nada Al Bedwawi, teammate Yaqoub Al Saadi and weightlifter Ayesha Al Balooshi – who represented the UAE in this summer’s Games in Rio – will join thousands of night-runners in Zabeel Park to take part in Daman’s Active Life Electric Run this Friday, November 4.

The 5k night-run returns with a new RECHARGED venue and will take participants on a journey through nine themed courselands, including three that are new to Dubai – the Disco and EDM (Electronic Dance music) party zones, and Electric Avenue. The night will end with a post-run concert where everyone will be decked out in neon outfits.

Joining the Olympic trio is double Olympic gold medallist and a successful middle distance runner, Dame Kelly Holmes.

Registrations are now open on www.ElectricRun.ae starting from Dh200 and the Deluxe Package, starting from Dh280. People can also register through any GO Sport store and selected Fitness First clubs.
