Calling all superheroes – you’re needed to show your support from the UAE community in this special morning filled with fun.

The Al Noor Training Centre is hosting a Superhero Fun Run that will see thousands of runners dress up as their favourite comic book characters to support people of determination.

Taking place on Friday March 15 from 7.30am until 10am, the centre has partnered up with the Middle East Film & Comic Con 2019 to host the run through Al Barsha 1 just behind Mall of the Emirates. But there's no need to be The Flash, because it’s all for the fun.

All participants will receive a special certificate, with the top three costumes taking home best-dressed prizes. The more heroic you look, the better chance you stand of getting your hands on that prize.

Entry for adults is priced at Dhs100, while the fee for those aged six to 17 is Dhs70. As for the littles ones aged five and below, it’s completely free.

Ready to be a superhero for a day? Runners can register right here.

“Al Noor has a long history of helping people of determination achieve their full potential and the simple fact is many of our students’ families do not have the economic resources to shoulder the financial burden of their daily care,” said Khalid Al Haylan, Chairman of Al Noor.

“These community events are so important for the Centre – they raise awareness, galvanise our supporters and raise much-needed funds.”

The non-profit education organisation has helped more than 2,000 students from more than 35 different nationalities achieve their best, with the centre featuring special education, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy – along with sports and music activities.

After you got your workout in, head out and celebrate St Patrick’s Day at these brilliant (and completely Irish) family events across the city.
Dhs100 (adults), Dhs70 (aged six-17), free (kids below six). Fri Mar 15, 7.30am-10am. Al Noor Training Centre, Al Barsha 1, behind Mall of the Emirates, www.alnoorspneeds.ae.
