Meydan Sobha, the developer of the Dh35 billion Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum City, District One, has announced the opening of its cycling and running track, which now welcomes all cyclists, joggers and fitness enthusiasts from across the country. The opening of the District One Cycling and Running Track is another successful milestone which is part of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's vision for Dubai and the developers' desire to provide world-class amenities for the community.

The official opening was marked by over 50 cyclists and joggers testing the track for the very first time. The 8.4 kilometre cycling and running track runs around the entire periphery of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One, situated just four kilometres from the Burj Khalifa. The track is illuminated by solar-powered lights to ensure good visibility when cycling or running at night and uses minimal energy consumption, making this an environmentally friendly and safe atmosphere for everyone.

The new District One running track is four metres wide and has a specialised running surface, making sure the balance is just right for all keen joggers. The cycling track is just over six metres wide and includes several break areas with parking facility for cyclists to rest and enjoy the surroundings. Both tracks are surrounded by beautiful trees and shrubs to ensure a tranquil environment in the heart of the city.

Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Chairman and CEO of Meydan Group, said, "The launch of the District One Cycling and Running track is a significant milestone for Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum City - District One, and we are incredibly proud of the progress we have made so far. The launch is testament to our support of the local community and commitment to promoting an active and healthy lifestyle."

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum City - District One will offer a range of other phenomenal features and activities including parks, man-made beaches and the stunning seven kilometre stretch of Crystal Lagoons offering a true beachside and active lifestyle. The careful planning of the area makes it one of the lowest density residential developments in the world with over 65 percent dedicated to open and green spaces, making this a truly unique destination in the Dubai property market.

Launched by Meydan Sobha, an equally owned joint venture between Meydan Group LLC and Sobha Developers Ltd., Phase 1 of the project will be ready for handover in mid-2016. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
