The Running League

The Running League (TRL) is a Dubai community running and well-being initiative, based on the ethos of respect for sportsmanship and fair play. The league is supported by local amateur running teams & clubs and the Dubai Sports Council.

Novice and advanced runners are invited to participate in this free membership season-long league (September 01 – April 15) and register for a selection of eligible road, trail, and cross-country races. Runners are encouraged to represent teams & clubs.

Team & individual results are regularly updated and published online during the season. The rankings are based on performance & participation frequency via a points-based cumulative system. All runners have equal chances to conquer podium places!
