Dubai is all set to host a socially distanced version of the Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC), the city’s flagship fitness initiative. The fourth edition of the challenge, which seeks to get residents and tourists to commit to 30 minutes of fitness activities for 30 days, begins on October 30.
The event that runs till November 28 will feature a mix of virtual and physical events and activities. “This year’s programme will have in place the highest standards of safety precautions and social distancing measures,” organisers said on Sunday.
Over the course of the 30-day challenge, Dubai will put up events, sports, health and wellness programmes and virtual sessions to make fitness accessible and easy for all.
“DFC welcomes the whole city to find the motivation to keep moving, discover their passion for fitness and embark on a truly holistic wellness journey, regardless of age, ability, interest, fitness level or location preference.”
Further details, including registration information and the full line-up of activities, will be released in the coming weeks. Participants are encouraged to set goals prior to the initiative’s kick-off and register on the DFC website.
The all-inclusive fitness movement launched in 2017 by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, sees Dubai transform into an open gym with fitness activities hosted across the city.
