Dubai’s best running clubs

Adidas Runners Dubai
This 4,700-strong Facebook community (officially part of Adidas) organises regular meet-ups and runs in the morning and after sunset – which is better for these summer months. There’s plenty to get involved with and loads of active members ready to offer advice and support. It even has a nauseatingly rousing opening gambit, to really get you in the mood.

Desert Road Runners
Certifiably the oldest organised running club in Dubai, the Desert Road Runners has been active since 1989. Hosting an annual 10km run, the group also hosts another four or five major running events every year in the winter months, with more regular jaunts taking place between Septebmer and April. Juniors and veterans alike are more than welcome.

Dubai Creek Striders
Narrowly missing out on being the oldest running club in Dubai, the Creek Striders was established in 1995 and organise its own half-marathon every year. The group runs weekly interval, track and long-distance training sessions. If you want to go all-in you can even get yourself some branded training gear and show the pavement that you mean business.
