The Women’s Run 2024 Edition: Highlighting Women’s Strength & Unity

The largest women’s-only running event in the region, The Women’s Run, announces its much-anticipated 2024 edition showcasing a bold look and vision. Featuring action-packed initiatives and exciting partners, The Women’s Run 2024 is brought together to celebrate and empower women runners across the UAE. Taking place at the iconic Al Forsan Park in Expo City Dubai on Sunday, 3rd November from 6AM onwards, women runners of all levels are invited to participate in either the 3-kilometer fun run, the 5-kilometer circuit or the challenging 10-kilometer distance. The Women’s Run aims to welcome women from all walks of life embracing a future of strength, unity, and progress in the region and beyond.

Initiated by Planb Events, with the support of the Dubai Sports Council, the run continues to celebrate the spirit of multicultural, empowered women in the region.

The Women’s Run 2024 Edition has received generous support from widely acclaimed homegrown and international brands including Strategic Partner, Expo City Dubai, and UAE’s much-loved and go-to healthy snacks label, Fade Fit. Popular Japanese sportswear label, ASICS will be the official running partner for the event alongside Paint Brush, the Art Partner to help enhance the creative skills of all.

The brand logo is inspired by the energy and movement of the race, while the refreshed design represents a sense of inclusivity and excellence, setting the stage for a phenomenal event that inspires women of all ages and backgrounds to challenge themselves.

The event aims to take this initiative across the Middle East and draw participants from local, regional, and international communities, celebrating the spirit of today’s women with a shared sense of empowerment and togetherness.

Leading up to the main event, The Women’s Run team intends to activate community-led initiatives and shed light on their carefully curated Women Of Substance cohort for 2024. This initiative is aimed at building a female community where each woman believes in her innate potential and inspires those around her. This year’s edition will introduce 11 brilliant profiles who have been selected to share their stories of triumphs and struggles through their social media platforms. The ladies will also be a part of community events prior to the run and encourage participation at the event.

This action-packed event caters to the entire family, offering an array of captivating experiences, invigorating fitness challenges, and empowering discussions on the significance of staying fit. Designed for the community and by the community, Women’s Run welcomes empowered athletic community groups, women entrepreneurs, resilient mums & humanitarian organisations including Special Olympics UAEHeroes Of Hope, At The Park, 5:30_Run, Dubai Creek Striders, IF_Endurance, Gulf for Good, British Mums, Launch SHE, Skillopaedia in Dubai, and many more.
