HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, shared an inspiring video showing how he lead and motivated 70,000 residents at yesterday’s Dubai Run.

The turnout at Sheikh Zayed Road showed people of all ages and abilities coming together for a historic run, as part of the 30×30 challenge nearing the end of the Dubai Fitness Challenge.

The scenes were indeed something else, and we reckon the energy was all sorts of amazing.

The Dubai community is truly something else

The all-inclusive run had two courses- one with a 5km and another 10km route

…to ensure anyone could take part in the race, no matter their age or abilities.

 

 

He also got to see Team Angel Wolff again and even praised Rio for this being his 200th race

#DubaiRun WHAT AN AMAZING RACE! Yesterday was special for many reasons. It was Rio’s 200th race as #TeamAngelWolf, meaning he has now covered well over 6000kms in inclusive racing of triathlons, running, swimming, cycling, tower stair climb, obstacle courses, in the past 5 years. Not bad for a 16 year old boy with disabilities. It was the first time to have had the opportunity to run 10km down Sheikh Zayed Highway, amongst the iconic buildings, that was closed to traffic just for this race! Surreal! It was the first time we have run amongst the energy of a community of over 70,000 people! Unique! Thousands of people embracing Dubai Fitness Challenge – community getting healthy and fit together! … but what made it extra special was the honour to meet His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai @faz3 again. We are incredibly grateful for the kindness, care and time he gave to Rio. For Rio, a Person Of Determination, to be able to be fully ‘included’ and integrated in a race, where he could be in his disability running chair, along side His Highness for the whole 10km was a wonderful experience for Rio and a huge honour when His Highness ran pushing Rio in his chair for part of the race! Thank you for being a role model of such real inclusion! THANK YOU Your Highness for creating such an amazing event and opportunity for the community. Together we can all create a more inclusive, healthier, kinder global community! @dubaifitnesschallenge @dubaisc @saeedhareb @cda_dubai #DubaiRun #Dubai30x30 #inclusion #disabilityawareness #TogetherWeCan #together #community #fitness #running Thank you to our sponsors: @lifcolb @panzani_me @damaninsurance @thesustainablecity @toyotauae @toyota @morganlewis_law @prolabdigital_uae @csmliveuae @lookcycle @revolutioncyclesdxb @gritandtonic @polarglobal @2xu @nike @sunsandsports @hope_amc @mytriclubdubai @imtridubai
