  • How can my children run for free?

    Children can run for free in our events - IF both parents register for one of the run events organized by Onside Partners, in any distance that they choose, then they will be able to register up to 2 children for FREE, in any distance.

    How it works:

    Simply register yourself and your spouse/partner for one of the eligible events. You can register for any distance (for example one of you could run the 10km, whilst the other runs the 3km).

    Once you have registered, contact the organizer directly with your names. We will then issue you with a code with which you can register up to 2 of your children, in any distance of the same event.

    Note that children must be 'age eligible' for the distance they are being entered for, for health and safety purposes. Our minimum ages are:
    3km - age 6
    5km - age 12
    10km - age 14

  • Race Pack Collection:

    All runners registered by 25th September have the opportunity to collect race numbers before race day at CAFFE NERO on Thursday 26th September, 6 pm - 7.30 pm at Motor City, next to Spinneys - Look for the man sitting down with lots of race numbers! (Note race pack collection is only at Caffe Nero at this time and date, it is not possible to pick up your race number from there at any other time)

    Please collect your race number before race day if you can, this cuts down on queues on race morning. Race numbers can be picked up on the day of the race from 5am at The Sevens (the race venue). If you collect your number on race day, we urge you to arrive early to avoid queues.

    Note that it is not possible to register for the race on race day, under any circumstances.

  • Start Location:

    Please see the map/link on this page named 'Event Location'.
    'The Sevens' Village central area. When you arrive, park in the Players Club car park which is signposted.
    The start area is in the village area, behind Costa Coffee.

  • Before the Race:

    Run start times are 6:15am for the 10km/5km and 6:15am for the 3km. The races start ON time, if you are late you WILL miss the start – we recommend arriving at least 45 minutes before race start. A map and directions to The Sevens can be found in the download section. When you arrive, park in the Players Club car park which is signposted. The start area is in the village area, behind Costa Coffee. Toilets, changing rooms and showers are available.
    For the race start, please gather BEHIND the start line 5 minutes before race start.

  • Do I have to run? Can I walk? Can I push my baby in a stroller?

    Our runs attracts runners of all ability. Hence many in each run will walk for a period of time, which is quite ok! Parents that wish to push their baby in a stroller are welcome to participate. Our courses are safe for this purpose - all we ask is that those with strollers start at the back, so as not to impede other runners. Aside from baby strollers, participants are not allowed to use any other wheeled or alternative form of propulsion, for the safety of all.

  • Important:

    Please ensure that your race number is held securely at the front of your vest with 4 safety pins and that it is VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES to race marshals, especially at the finish. There are safety pins provided for each race number. Please do NOT run through the finish line more than once (ie with friends that have finished behind you), as this causes problems recording finish times and positions and your race time WILL be voided. Instructions on how to wear your timing tags will be provided. Loop only ONE tag through the left hand lace of each of your shoes, fasten your shoe laces and let the timing tag hang freely on the RIGHT hand side of your shoe. Repeat for the other shoe, so that you have one tag hanging from the lace of each shoe. Do not tuck the tags into your shoes. Please ensure timing tags are worn as directed, or your race time will not be recorded.

  • Results and Photos:

    Links to results will be posted on the Run Squeak website and results.events and the Dubai Desert Road Run Facebook page within 24 hours of the race, usually much sooner. Race photos from the race day (so long as the photos are suitable for publication) will also be published on the DDRR facebook page, are free to access to all and are edited and posted at a number of times in the days following the run.

  • During the Race:

    The 10km/5km runs will start first, so 3km runners should wait until the 10km/5km has started before lining up to start. Faster runners should start nearer to the front, slower and inexperienced runners should start at the back. Only enter the start area when instructed. Take notice of cones that mark the start/finish area and the course that you need to run on. Note that overall race results are based on gun time, as is the international standard for running events.

  • After you finish:

    After finishing the run, please remove your timing chips and give them to the person at the medal table – your returned chips will be exchanged for a finishers medal. No chips, no medal, so keep them safe once you finish.

  • Parking:

    Parking at The Players Club, The Sevens, Al Ain Road, Dubai

  • What time will the runs start?

    Run start times are 6:15am for the 10km/5km and 6:15am for the 3km. The races start ON time, if you are late you WILL miss the start – we recommend arriving at least 45 minutes before race start.

  • Prizes:

    Trophies for first 3 in each age category. Prizes for overall winners in each distance. Raffle prizes at after race presentation.
