If you joined us in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay then you probably experienced how fun it is to be a part of a running group. Maybe you also attended the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon and noticed that many running groups in Dubai joined the event! Joining a running club might be exactly what you need if you’re looking to change things up and renew your love for the sport. When you join a run club, you become a part of a community of individuals who are also striving toward their running goals. That’s not all! Here are 8 benefits of joining a running group in Dubai. 

1. Increased Motivation 

When you’re a part of a running group, you get your own personal cheering squad. Members of running groups always root each other during races and support one another through long runs. You’ll also be more motivated to stick to your training because you and your fellow runners will hold each other accountable. It’s harder to blow off a training session when you know that your teammates are waiting for you. 

2. Sense of Community 

Running with a group gives you an incredible sense of community. Whether you’re racing together, volunteering at a race, or cheering on your teammates, it’ll be fun and rewarding to be connected with like-minded people. No one else can relate to you better than fellow runners who experience the same problems and triumphs. 

3. Varied Training and Discover New Routes 

Joining a running group will also encourage you to vary your training. When you train by yourself, there’s a high chance of you sticking with a routine that you’re comfortable doing. But by being a part of a running group you will be encouraged to have varied training and try new routes. This will help you ensure that you’re not going to become bored and make you more excited when it comes to running. 

4. Friendly Competition 

A little friendly competition never hurts and can actually push you to become better! Even the least competitive runner is pushed by running with other people. As you get to know a group and their abilities, you will be able to discover your competitive side which can really drive you to improve your running performance. 

5. Learn New Techniques

Getting running tips and techniques from other runners is very valuable. Each and every runner has their own techniques when it comes to running. Taking advice from other runners will help you learn at the same time help you prevent mistakes and stay on top of your game. 

6. Socialize 

There’s no better way to meet like-minded people with similar goals and lifestyles than by joining a running. You’ll gain friends to compare notes on races and events and simply talk about all things running. While your other friends or family might not be interested in hearing about your new training regiment, fellow runners will be fascinated. You’ll be surprised to discover the friendships you can form in your running groups. Joining events such as the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon also allow you to meet more people, so hurry and register now to meet amazing runners not only from Dubai but across the world.

8. Beat Boredom 

Although sometimes it’s fun when you’re running on your own, it can also be boring at times. When you have a group of runners with you, you’re more likely to enjoy your run since you’ll be going to different running routes and can have conversations with people who have the same interests as you.
