Last summer edition of free family event on Saturday, 7 September
The Cigna Park Run at Ibn Battuta Mall will reach a thrilling conclusion this weekend with the fourth and final edition of the indoor summer run activities series on Saturday, 7 September in Dubai.
Gather family and friends for a walk, jog or run through the world’s largest themed mall in air-conditioned comfort, before enjoying a range of retailer offers.
Held in collaboration with RaceME, the region’s leading sports events company, Cigna Park Run 2019 Dubai has inspired nearly 2,000 people to adopt a summer fitness routine, with a growing number of participants in each of the previous three events.
Arif Ahli, General Manager, Ibn Battuta Mall, said: “We are delighted by the tremendous response to our indoor summer run series, which highlights our commitment to bringing family-friendly activities and attractions to our malls across Dubai. We thank our partners, RaceME, and the retailers at the mall for making this such a successful event.”
Jon Norris, Head of Business Development at RaceME, added: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the popularity of the Cigna Park Run at Ibn Battuta Mall. We thank Nakheel Malls and all of the runners who helped us cement our indoor family fun run concept. As the summer season draws to a close, we look forward to resuming our monthly outdoor events, starting on Saturday, 5 October, at Al Ittihad Park on Palm Jumeirah.”
