Dubai Holding Women’s Run, supported by UAE Athletics Federation, will take place on Friday, 7 November 2014, at 7am on Umm Sequim Road opposite Madinat Jumeirah and near the Police Academy on Al Sofouh 1.
For some women participating in this Run, the motivating factors are the opportunity to run in a supportive and friendly environment and to socialize with other women runners. For others, such as competitive female runners it is the opportunity to be part of the front runners instead of feeling that they are the “chase” group. An all women’s race lets them experience the rush of being first across the finish line instead of being the first woman across the finish line.
Regardless of what pace you are setting or what motivates you to cross the finish line, it is the collective power of the group all supporting one another that makes the Dubai Holding Women’s Run so unique and memorable. Pick your race and come set the pace with us in 2014.
Our mission is to offer women’s running races which motivate and inspire women to come set the pace. The Run also enables women to be active, fit and involved.

Deciding which charity to run for in a race. Whether you are a runner with your own place in a race, or are perhaps looking to secure a spot running with a charity, there’s no denying that there are many worthy charities out there – all of whom could really do with your help. Charity runners provide a significant amount of income for charities and by accepting a place you’re entering into a firm commitment to raise the agreed amount of funds. It is not one to be taken lightly and it worth bearing in mind the charity will be relying on those running funds.
The benefits of running a race for charity
Though running a race can be a great way of improving your health and fitness and doing wonders for your self-confidence, running on behalf of a charity is also a hugely popular option. Running a race for charity allows you to raise important funds whilst getting a great workout. Here’s our guide on running for a charity in a race. But with so many worthy charities to choose from, how do you decide which charity to run for? When deciding on the charity that you want to run for, think about the points below – each of which will help you get closer to making this all important running decision.
- Think about whether you have any real affinity with a particular charity or whether you know much about their work.
- Consider a cause that is close to your heart – it may be that you have personal or family reasons why you should run for a particular charity.
- Maybe you know someone that is already running for a charity and you would like to team up together on race day.
- Consider what you believe in and select a cause you feel strongly about. It will prove invaluable when you are trying to persuade people to hand over their hard-earned cash.
