The Mai Dubai City Half Marathon has just finished and it’s now time to prepare for the Skechers Performance Run. If you’ve missed the chance to bring your family with you in the half marathon, now is your chance to run with them in the Skechers Performance Run.

Running is a great and easy way to get the whole family to achieve a healthier lifestyle. All it takes is a pair of good running shoes, a safe environment, and a lot of motivation. The winter season is about to come in Dubai and this is the perfect time to get your family into running. Here are a few of the many benefits of running with your family. 

1. Running teaches children good values. 

Running requires a lot of discipline. Runners usually have to wake up early in the morning and maintain a healthy diet to be able to run effectively. Although your training and diet don’t have to be as intense, running will still teach you and your family the importance of determination, time management, and perseverance. Being able to participate and finish in a race can also help build your family members self-esteem. The Skechers Performance Run is a family-friendly race event coming soon on the 19th of November at the Ripe Market in Dubai Police Academy. Register today!

2. Running promotes family bonding. 

It’s very easy to get caught up in life and not have enough time for family bonding. Today, many families believe that they are too busy with work, school and many other things. We suggest going for a run as a way of bonding with your family. Running can be extremely beneficial in reducing stress and it includes working together as a team. Furthermore, it’s a good opportunity to get to know each other better rather than watching a movie or playing a game which doesn’t involve engaging with one another. 

Children are also more likely to gain more life skills at home than they do anywhere else. This is why it’s important to really think about how you bond with them. By running, you’ll be able to teach them the importance of hard work and teamwork. Not only that, but running will also teach the importance of goal setting both as an individual and as a team.

3. Running boosts self-confidence. 

Let’s admit it, running boosts our self-confidence. By running with your family, you can set running goals and track your progress together. Once you start to see how your running performance is improving you will surely feel accomplished and feel that sense of pride. Your self-confidence will improve and carry over to other areas of your life such as work, school, or social life. 

Joining a running event in Dubai like the Skechers Performance Run will also give your family a chance to receive a medal. We know that receiving a medal can give some people a sense of accomplishment which can also help boost confidence. Since the Skechers Performance Run has shorter distances than the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon, it will be much easier for you and your family to finish the race!

4. Running promotes a healthy lifestyle. 

We’re all aware that the rise of technology has led us to stare at our screens the whole day. If you feel like you aren’t getting enough physical activities throughout the day, try running. You don’t have to run for hours to be healthy, a 30-minute run is guaranteed to burn between 200 to 500 calories a day and that’s a fantastic way to maintain a healthy lifestyle. When your family gets used to running, they will be able to enjoy it and make running a lifelong habit. 

If you’re really serious about running with your family, sign up at the Skechers Performance Run this 19th of November at the Ripe Market in Dubai Police Academy. Everyone ages 6 to 99 years old are welcome to join the event. There are also 2.5km, 5km, and 10km races for you to choose from. Good luck and see you there!
