Faculty, staff, and students all participated as members of “Team Middlesex” in the 2nd annual “We Run DXB” 10 km fun run on Friday, November 13th. Sponsored by Nike, and one of a series of 18 Nike runs held globally, this year’s run attracted more than 13,000 runners for the early morning (7 a.m.) start. All registered runners received a fluorescent orange Nike t-shirt; the roads around Dubai Mall and Burj Park (the start and finish) were a sea of orange for the duration of the run and during the before and after warm-ups and celebrations.
Some members of Team Middlesex found each other at the finish line and posed for an impromptu photo. The times of team members varied from speedy 49 minutes to a slower but still respectable 1 hour 45 minutes. Most importantly, we had fun. Thanks to Coach Sasa for organizing!
