When you’re excited for an event like the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon, it can be a challenge to know what to bring. This is where this short blog comes in very handy. We suggest creating a checklist to ensure that you prepare all the needed items in advance and take them with you during the day of the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon. 

1. Sunscreen 

As a runner, bringing sunscreen is always a must. Make sure to protect your skin from sunburn with adequate sunscreen. The Mai Dubai City Half Marathon will be held on October 30 at DIFC which means the weather in Dubai might be a little bit colder. However, we still suggest that you still wear sunscreen even on cloudy days to avoid sunburn. 

2. Smartwatch 

We suggest using a smartwatch so you can easily measure your pace and track your distance during the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon. A lot of runners like using a smartwatch compared to other trackers because it’s one less thing to carry. A smartwatch can also help you monitor your steps, your heartbeat and other factors that may be useful to check when 

running a half marathon in Dubai. 

3. Muscle Support and Bandages 

There will be an ambulance in the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon in case of any emergencies. However, we suggest that you still bring a small first aid kit with your essentials in case you or other runners might need it. 

4. Race Number and Race Information 

Before the day of the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon, make sure to read the information we’ll be providing soon to make sure you know everything you need to know about the race. Wait for the announcement on when you can collect your race pack along with your race number or bib to ensure that you don’t rush on the day of the event. 

5. Water 

One of the most important things you should bring when running a half marathon in Dubai is water! Running a half marathon or even 5 and 10 KM is not a joke. Although there will be water stations in the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon – we suggest that you still bring a small bottle of water just in case you’ll need it. It’s also a good idea to drink a glass of water or sports drink the night before and another in the morning before the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon starts to help you hydrate and give your body time to absorb it.
