Abu Dhabi Ladies Dash is returning to Yas Island this week

The weather is cooling and we’re all venturing outdoors again to enjoy it.

If you like keeping active it’s a good time of year to take part in outdoor exercise across the city, too.

Want to get up, get out and break a sweat?

Ladies in Abu Dhabi can sign up for the Abu Dhabi Ladies Dash which is happening this week at Yas Marina Circuit.

Taking place on Wednesday October 30, the returning event features a relay race and a number of activities and attractions in the activity village.

Open to women of all ages and abilities, the fun-run event aims to encourage people to be more active so you don’t have to be a keen athlete to take part.

Groups of five can sign up for the 5km relay race with each participant taking on a distance of 1km.

On the day the activity village will also run activities for children as well as free classes in Zumba, gymnastics, bodycombat and yoga.

Prizes will also be on offer for the best dressed and most supported team taking part, just in case you need some extra incentive.

“The Abu Dhabi Ladies Dash aligns very well with the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre efforts towards preserving the health and wellbeing of the Abu Dhabi community and promoting public health awareness and prevention,” said Dr Aysha Al Dhaheri, section head of health promotion at Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre.

“The event is a great platform to empower women to become more active and healthy by encouraging females to come together in a fun, relaxed and private setting with lots of health activities.”

It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun.

We’ll see you at the starting line.
