For the second year in a row, Dubai will throw a one-month-long fitness festival, aiming to become the most active city in the world.
The festival will extend from October 19 to November 17, when sport events will take over the city encouraging residents from all ages to join the fitness challenge and get moving for at least 30 minutes everyday.
The Dubai Fitness Challenge this year will include “energizing weekend carnivals, dedicated fitness villiages, and more than 2,000 free classes, events and community-led activities,” according to the Dubai Fitness Challenge website.
This annual festival was initiated last year by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and it succeeded in making a million people join in the movement and commit to their daily exercise.
