We're loving this culture and fashion event which is taking trainers to a whole 'nother level. New products will launch at this event which started as a sneaker gig but has now grown into a culture, music and art fest. This is taking place next Friday and Saturday in the Dubai design district.

9. The sandpit

If you completed the Nike 10 km or the triathlon this weekend this can be your next goal. An untimed 10km that's littered with obstacles throughout, this is no mean feat! Taking place in Al Barari, standard entry is AED 340.

10. Fun runs galore

These guys are all about making runs fun. If you 'missed' the Electric Run and the Nike 10 km, don't fret, you still have the Colour Run to look forward to. Forget about beating your PB at this one, it's much more important to take your time to ensure you're completely covered in paint by the end.

This is an amazing five month extravaganza of festivals, food and shopping. The event hosts over 70 countries and has got some great rides for the kids (and of course for yourself if you feel like acting like a six old). Admission is free and the event takes place in the Global Village.


13. Above and beyond

Ever wondered what it's like to go to space? This incredibly realistic (apparently) flight simulator is going to be in Children's City, Creek Side Park until December 12th. Admission is free so if you want to be an astronaut for a bit all you need to do is turn up!
