There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.”

Every time I run it's with the mindset that if I die at this race, it's OK."

I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”

Never underestimate the power that one good workout can have on your mind. Keeping the dream alive is half the battle.”

The world is actually full of challenges and we need to challenge ourselves. I took a challenge to run that fast. It consumes a lot of energy especially mentally. But I took myself and accepted to be challenged and I challenged the time.”

⚠️ UPDATE: JADCS Half Marathon & 10km 2020

We know you have been waiting for this race! We are just as sad as you to announce the postponement of the 19th edition of Johnson Arabia Dubai Creek Striders Half Marathon which was scheduled to take place on 4 December 2020.

Health and safety of our runners, their supporters and volunteers is our top priority. This, together with ensuring a top-class event experience, is the reason we have decided it would be in everyone’s best interest to postpone the race till the new year.

Don’t despair! We are here for you! We will soon release details of the virtual edition of this race on the same day (4 Dec).

Keep an eye on our social channels on how you can stay active, safe and participate in this event. #TheRunMustGoOn

As rainy autumn sets in here in the UK, it’s time for the kit clear out. 4 years later, there’s some kit far too precious to lose! Always the happiest of memories with the BEST running club and sending everyone I ran with virtual hugs from a wet UK! ☔️ ... See MoreSee Less

We are all missing you. In fact we are all missing everyone. It is still weird getting up on a Friday morning to not run with the Striders on a magical mystery tour. My trips where such a mystery that even I didn’t k ow where we where going and I was the group leader 🤣🤣🤣

The dcs shirt is a keeper...very true when you say its packed with so much of good memories..hope to see you one day coming back and doing at least a tenner with us... missing you loads Diane Corbett. Even yesterday we spoke about you

I haven’t thrown any of mine away - if nothing changes, then this will be the first year that I haven’t visited in December for the half, since I left 🙁

Once a strider, always a strider 👌👌

Wearing my DCS long sleeve on this wet cold day in France..special memories.

No pics but I wore my RAK t shirt on my long, chilly run this morning in Belfast. At one stage I wished there was a Murphy’s bench and a bunch of friendly striders to encourage me home.

We miss you too. Friday’s are just not the same without my family

So there goes the emotional rant.. yeah, running solo in such beautiful places does miss the banter and fun !

Ditto. 😍

We want to extend our sincerest apology for the inconvenience the outage has caused for our customers. We hope this FAQ answers some of the questions you have: http://garmin.com/outage.

Hello @DubaiStriders! We have missed you all and looking forward to getting back into the running mode. Safety first!
