All proceeds from the event will benefit the Al Jalila foundation.
Participants at the Al Maha 10km Fun Run can choose to run, walk or jog in a benevolent race to support Al Jalila foundation’s humanitarian causes. For AED 100, participants can enjoy Al Maha’s mesmerising surrounding while running along the dedicated track road that winds its way through golden sand dunes. The enchanting track will end at the desert event site, where runners can replenish and cool off with post-race fruit feast during the prize distribution ceremony. Runners at the Al Maha 10km Fun Run will be given a raffle ticket, which will be entered into a draw that will be announced at 6 pm. Lucky winners of the grand draw will win amazing prizes including Al Maha day packages as well as an overnight stay at the resort, valued over AED 10,000.
