Sports City has announced the launch of its new athletics track by hosting a unique event in partnership with celebrated Dubai athlete Marcus Smith.
Starting from 4pm today, 21 November, the event will see Smith running non-stop for 24 hours on the track located in the Sports Village hub.
Smith challenged himself during last year’s Dubai Fitness Challenge by successfully running 30 marathons in 30 consecutive days, and is now inviting Dubai residents to participate in this run with him for as long as they can during his epic 24-hour run around the new 400m track.
Speaking ahead of the run, Marcus Smith added: “When you complete a challenge like running non-stop for 24 hours, you naturally feel a great sense of achievement and something like this fuels my ambitions to conquer more challenges.
"I invite the residents of Dubai to join me for this challenge and I look forward to achieving this goal together.”
