It’s quite cool to see that many residents participated in this event. Despite the current crisis, organizers were able to pull off a cool event given the precautionary guidelines the emirate has implemented.
We hope everyone to continue staying safe and take care of our health. May this event also encourage everyone to pick up a sport and maintain a fit and active lifestyle.
