You can run alongside Usain Bolt in Dubai

If you’ve ever fancied testing yourself against the fastest man in the world, now’s your chance as Usain Bolt is running in Dubai.

And on November 13, you can run alongside him – or try to beat him! – in a 1.45km fun run.

The 11-time World Champion will be running at Expo 2020 Dubai as part of the Gatorade run.

The Olympic legend will also be on hand for meet-and-greets with fans before and after the run at the Mobility District.

You will need to pre-register for the run which you can do so here by November 11. And they’re encouraging runners to donate to the designated charity of Al Noor Rehabilitation & Welfare Association for People of Determination.

Sholto Douglas-Home, Chief Marketing, Communication and Sales Officer for Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “We are thrilled by the opportunity for Usain Bolt, alongside our partners at PepsiCo and Gatorade, to help bring focus to one of Expo 2020’s central themes – to inspire people to embrace, on a daily basis, the importance and value of fitness, health and wellbeing in their lives. Sports has the enduring power to bring people, communities and nations together so we are honoured that Usain has agreed to be a part of the Run the World event and are confident that it will encourage many people to run for their own good causes.”
