Extraordinary race experience of Electric Run to light up Dubai in November

The global phenomenon in mass participation sport and the world’s brightest 5k night run – Electric Run - is coming to Dubai this November.

UAE residents will be treated to an extraordinary race experience that has quickly become the biggest night run in the world.

Electric Run has electrified London, Chicago, Los Angeles and Singapore, and has taken Sydney and New York by storm. Since 2013, over one million people have taken on the Electric Run challenge around the globe.

Electric Run is a night run and the most social mass participation event in the world. The format features up to seven lands, including Electro Rainforest, Rainbow Road, Sweet Tooth Acres, Neffmaus Land, The Powerhouse, Electric Avenue, Pillar Party, and the all-new Under the Sea.

Each land is unique and is composed of different artistic elements to convey different moods, ranging from energetic to ethereal transporting participants to different worlds.

The 5km neon-lit track also sees giant light installations, DJs blasting international modern electric music, and an epic end-of-run concert.

Electric Run attracts people of all ages and backgrounds in whichever part of the world it tours. Participants of all ages in their neon attire become part of the show which makes it more than just a running event. Participants can walk or run the 5km course at their own pace with friends and family before they cross the finish line and arrive at the unforgettable post-event concert.

The inaugural Middle East events, set to take place in Dubai in November and Abu Dhabi in the New Year, have already attracted the title sponsorship that aims to mobilise the UAE community to lead a healthy, active lifestyle through a wide range of events and programmes.
