Dubai Investments Flagship ‘Annual Green Run’ returns
Dubai Investments Green Run 2023 is returning in its second edition on Sunday 15th January 2023 in Dubai Investments Park. Kicking off from the main round-about located next to Dubai Investments Headquarters Building in Dubai Investments Park 1, the 3km and 5km jog or run is open for all age groups and is aimed at promoting a greener and a smarter future. The registrations for the run are open and interested participants can register on www.greenrun.ae.
“Dubai Investments Green Run debuted last year as a community event, reiterating the Group’s adoption of sustainable practices, aimed at encouraging and promoting a healthier lifestyle. Dubai Investments believes in supporting communities that it operates in, and the Green Run is an initiative where both employees and communities can participate in solidarity, for a common cause. We started off the 1st edition with more than 800 participants and we are expecting around 3000 participants this time.
We are extremely happy the way this flagship annual community event has taken shape and it creates a perfect opportunity to give back to the community and create environmental awareness,” said Mohammed Saeed Al Raqbani, head of sustainability committee, Dubai Investments & General Manager, Dubai Investments Industries and Masharie.
The 3KM walk/run is for participants at all levels of fitness and can run, walk, push strollers or use wheelchairs towards the ﬁnish line at their own pace. The 5KM walk/run is a timed run and top adult and youth finishers in male and female categories will be rewarded with cash prizes. Organizations and schools with the best green message will also be rewarded.
Ruth Dickinson Event Director FittGROUP said, “Dubai Investments Green Run is a fun community event to raise awareness and support green initiatives and choices we can make in our everyday lives. The run will adopt smart practices including paperless communications and registrations, as well as sustainable route signs and finish arches. As part of the run, participants are encouraged to bring their own re- usable, refillable water bottles that can be filled at water stations, promoting reuse, recycle and reduce single use plastics and recycled materials. Recycling bins will also be placed at the start and finish areas, along the route and in the run village with the facility to recycle other plastic materials.”
The run will culminate at the Green Village, located in Dubai Investments Park 1, behind Dubai Investments Headquarters. The Green Village is designed as a Smart Zone, for the whole family, with family style environmentally friendly activities and entertainment.
