This year Dubai Ride will occur on Sunday, 12th November, while Dubai Run will conclude the challenge on Sunday, 26th November. Both events will offer families, recreational cyclists and runners and fitness enthusiasts the unique opportunity to experience cycling, running, jogging or walking past Dubai's iconic landmarks on Sheikh Zayed Road.
