FBA-Sports with Saucony arranged the 2nd of its kind, Half-marathon in Emirates hills, Dubai. Probably the greenest running event in UAE. More or less the whole 21km is on green lush roads and walkways around the lakes of Springs and Emirates Hills in Dubai. 100’s of runners showed on this perfect morning, good temperatures and smiley happy runners.
