Although the temperatures in Dubai can get searing hot, the city still has a lot of green spaces and breezy running areas to satisfy even the most avid runner. With the city constantly changing and evolving to better accommodate those who exercise and to make it the “most active city in the world,” here are the best running routes that Dubai has perfected.
With a total of 14 kilometers (8.6 miles) and a four-meter-wide (13 feet) running track, this is one of the most breezy places to go for a run in Dubai. There are also resting areas alongside the route, where many people stretch, do a little yoga, or even take a quick dip in the ocean—this track runs parallel to the beach.
Another open-air and cooler area for a run in Dubai, JBR has two kilometers (1.2 miles) of soft track for runners of all levels. This particular path is also excellent because of the many training machines along the way for those who want a full workout.
