Everyone knows exercise and pumping electronic beats go hand in hand, but a new craze has arrived that merges the two like never before. Electric run has so far lit up 30 cities worldwide with it’s neon spangled 5 km run that takes thousands of participants on a journey through colour and sound.
Returning to the Emirates for it’s second season this November, the 2016 version will take place in Zabeel park and runners will get to experience new ‘Electroband’ technology which will synchronise soundtracks throughout the courses. We don’t really understand how it works, but it sounds state of the art.
As well as music blasting throughout the course, participants will pass through themed dance party ‘zones’ at every kilometre, where you can run on through or have a quick break and boogie. Once you cross the finish line you are swept into massive after party with live DJs. According to the organisers, the music will be a mostly electronic dance with a smattering of hip hop and pop.
The Dubai run starts on 18 Nov 2016 although there are dates in other locations throughout the year. You can find out more and buy tickets at electricrun.ae
