Off on holiday to Dubai at end of week.

Anyone got experience of running in Dubai, we are staying in the Marine area, don't want to upset the locals but would prefer not to do much running on gym treadmill.

Advise appreciated, I know it will be warm.

I've not run in Dubai but have in Doha. Capri pants and a Tshirt were acceptable from a "covering up flesh" point of view! Dubai is generally more liberal than Doha so I would suggest having a look at what others are wearing and follow suit. At least it's not too hot at this time of year.

Have run in Dubai many times and running outside doesn't upset the locals. The marina off the Jumeirah Beach Road (beyond The Walk) has a path right around it which is about a 5 mile loop. Never had a problem.

Thanks folks, I never wear short shorts or vests.

Nice to know about the 5 mile loop.
