Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) - the hugely successful, flagship fitness initiative of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council - prepares to open its second edition backed by some of the biggest names across government and private sector in the UAE.

Reflecting the truly inclusive nature of the event and the ardent support it has received as a social movement for the people, DFC’s official partners and sponsors are amplifying an action-packed programme, with Dubai Tourism and Dubai Sports Council working together to activate the challenge across the city.

From 26 October to 24 November, DFC 2018 will be running a full calendar of events and activities designed to get everyone from all segments of society active for 30 consecutive minutes for 30 days, taking Dubai a step closer to becoming the world’s most active city.

"The Dubai Fitness Challenge is a very important part of this calendar and was a huge success in the first year itself, encouraging hundreds of thousands to exercise 30 minutes a day for 30 days. The inaugural edition of the challenge made a huge impact on the community, encouraging members of our society - young and old, men and women and people of determination - to embrace physical fitness as a part of their daily routine and lifestyle. “
