Following the ever-popular Nike We Run Series hosted by the Nike + Run Club, We Run DXB is back with a bang this year. The epic 10k race returns to the sunny Emirate on the 13th of November and the 2015 circuit will take place in the scenic Downtown Dubai area, featuring a backdrop of the iconic Burj Khalifa. This year’s event is expected to reel in up to 15,000 runners — a huge leap from the 8,000 athletes that took part last year and as always, the event is open to people from all walks of life and all levels of fitness. The series is all about encouragement and celebrating a running culture on a global scale, motivating runners to achieve their personal best.
