More visitors are expected as the second half of the Dubai Fitness Challenge gets underway, says Nakheel
Palm Jumeirah Fitness Village has attracted up to 5,000 people a day during the first two weeks of the Dubai Fitness Challenge.
More visitors are expected as the second half of the campaign gets underway and runs until November 22, said Palm developer Nakheel.
Al Ittihad Park, located at the heart of Palm Jumeirah, has been transformed into a workout wonderland for the 30x30 initiative, with hundreds of free events and attractions throughout the month-long campaign.
Around 2,500 people are visiting the park each day during the week, with the number doubling at weekends.
The park’s star attraction is a 3.2km Glow Run that lights up the entire length of its perimeter jogging track. Others include the sports club zone, a family zone, a health and wellness section, special activities for people of determination and a programme of daily and nightly fitness events.
Nakheel chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah, who recently led hundreds of Nakheel staff on a 10k walkathon at Palm Jumeirah’s Boardwalk, said: “We are proud to support Dubai Fitness Challenge by turning our flagship development, Palm Jumeirah, into a fitness destination for the month. Al Ittihad Park is the perfect venue to bring residents, visitors and employees together for this wonderful initiative.”
Activities at Palm Jumeirah take place every day and night until Thursday November 22.
