Meydan Sobha, the developer of the $9.5bn (AED35bn) Mohammed Bin Al Maktoum Rashid City - District One, opened the ‘District One Cycling & Running Track’ which will now welcome all cyclists, joggers and fitness enthusiasts from across the country.
The official opening was marked by over 50 cyclists and joggers testing the 8.4 km track for the very first time.
The cycling and running track runs the entire periphery of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One situated just four kilometers from the Burj Khalifa.
The track is illuminated by solar powered lights to ensure good visibility when cycling or running at night and uses minimal energy consumption making this an environmentally friendly and safe atmosphere for everyone.
The new District One running track is four metres wide and has a specialized running surface making sure the balance is just right for all keen joggers.
The cycling track is just over six metres wide and includes several break areas with parking facility for cyclists to rest and enjoy the surroundings.

The launch is testament to our support of the local community and commitment to promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.”
