desert road runners
Arguably the largest group in Dubai, the club caters for any age and ability with a focus on road running and provides sessions and programs for marathon running in particular.
They host a weekly Predictor race on Sunset beach along the rubber track. Like a Park Run it is open to anyone on the night with a 5K and a 2.5K well suited to famillies and kids. They also host two competitive 5K races and a 10K at the Dubai Autodrome each year. They are always well attended by the local club runners and provide a great competition.
All the details of the training nights are listed on their site. You can contact them easily through Facebook.
DRR run a membership scheme to fund the management.
