Sheikh Zayed turned into a sea of humanity at dawn on Friday as 146,000 residents – young and old men, women and children.

Emiratis and Expats ran bravly in the morning chill and hit the road with bright-eyed joy for the Dubai Run – now the world’s largest run.

Families and children made up much of the crowd for the fun run, which has two routes along Sheikh Zayed Road, one of 5km and one of 10km.
The annual event is the culmination of the month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge, where UAE citizens, residents and visitors are invited to take part in 30 minutes of exercise, every day for 30 days.

 The Crown Prince of Dubai, Prince Fazza was the figurehead of the Challenge was at the start line of the race, next to the Museum of the Future.
