We don’t know about his sleigh, but Santa Claus (well, several of them) came running to town today to participate in one of the most EPIC events of the month.
Dubai Festival City hosted the first ever Santa Run today morning, and to say it was a resounding success would be an understatement.
The run was organised by RaceME and it covered two distances- 2.5km for kids and beginners and 5km course for pros.
Hundreds of Dubai residents came dressed for the first ever Dubai Santa Run
And it made for a delightful sight
Nothing like a playful fitness challenge to welcome the holidays- in true Dubai style
The runners even got to click selfie with the man of the season in his grotto
Plus they got FREE Santa hat, beard and t-shirt for the race
A white Christmas in Dubai- there was snowfall at the event, who would’ve thunk?
This was indeed magical
