2016 DIADORA PALM JUMEIRAH 10km TUNNEL RUN
Greetings 10km Tunnel Runners,
Come and join us for the inaugural Palm Jumeirah 10km Tunnel Run. Starting outside Aquaventure and running through the Palm Tunnel and finishing at Al Ittihad Park on the Palm Jumeirah Trunk. There is some very important information that you need to know in advance regarding parking and transport for the event.
There is NO PARKING available anywhere on the Palm Crescent for athletes – These are the ONLY OPTIONS on the day. NB This is a POINT to POINT run and the start/finish are in different areas.
Park at the GATEWAY MONORAIL station – and take the MONORAIL to the start at Aquaventure. Tickets for the MONORAIL must be purchased via the EVENT STORE for this event on Premier Online. Tickets purchased are time specific so you MUST book for your preferred departure time. If you are late for your booked seat then there is no guarantee you will get to the start line on time.
Take a Taxi and get dropped off at the Nasimi Beach car park – then walk the 1km to the start line [Why not share a taxi with other runners?]
Get dropped off by a friend/family member at the drop and go zone at the Nasimi Beach car park – then walk the 1km to the start line [Car-Pooling is highly recommended]
SPECTATORS and FAMILY/FRIEND DROPPING OFF
There is substantial parking under the GOLDEN MILE shops and restaurants, which is also walking distance to the FINISH at Al Ittihad Park. Directions to this parking will be sign-posted on the day. THERE IS NO PARKING AT AL ITTIHAD PARK BESIDE THE FINISH LINE.
