Aloft Abu Dhabi hosts charity run

Indoor event to take place at ADNEC in September

Area Guides

Aloft Abu Dhabi will host the eighth edition of its charity run inside the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) on Friday, September 22.

The competitive, indoor run marks the beginning of the season for the Abu Dhabi and Dubai running communities and sounds like a noble way to start. It is also a great way for groups of friends and young families to come together for a day of fun, fitness and a good cause.

The event hopes to raise funds for the Farah Project that is spearheaded by the Al Jalila Foundation.

There are six individual categories including the fastest lap, 6km, 10km, 20km and a kid’s lap (children aged four-11), with start times split across the morning and afternoon. In case you’re more of a team player, gather your crew and sign up for one of the three team categories. The air-conditioned race track stretches across a distance of 2km.

Each participant is eligible to enter the grand raffle, while winners of each category will receive a prize. The spoils include weekend getaways and stays at Marriott properties around the world, dinner vouchers, health club membership and lots more. So, on your mark, set…

Fri, Sept 22. Registration closes on September 21 at 11.59pm. Visit for more information.
