Registration is now open for one of the best runs in the Middle East. The ADCB Zayed Sports City Pink 5&10k Run presented by Daman’s ActiveLife will return on 14 October to continue the annual tradition of benefitting breast cancer research and education charities. Having won a Sport Industry Award earlier this year, more than 1,000 people are expected to attend.

The run is special not only because of its connection to breast cancer, but also because of its great atmosphere and professional organisation. The IAAF certified track has professional timing and is on a closed circuit, making it a great place to track progress from one race to the next. For those who have a more recreational take on the sport, there are plenty of families running, and even babies in prams have been spotted completing the route! There is a clear sense of community that you must experience to understand.

The unofficial start of the run season, this is part of a three-run series held at ZSC. Be sure not to miss your chance to register by visiting
