Swim the Burj Al Arab

Date: 
Friday, 31 March, 2017 (All day)

If you’ve ever driven past the Burj Al Arab, or longingly stared at it from 360o and thought, “I could swim around that”, then you’re in luck.

The Dubai Holding Burj Al Arab Swim is back for its 13th year, where up to 700 swimmers are preparing for a 1,600 meter open water swim in the Arabian Gulf– all in the name of a good cause. The event will be supporting Al Jalila Foundation’s Obesity Research campaign, and features as an official event of Dubai Sports Council. With 2017 being the UAE’s Year of Giving, what better way is there to dust off those lungs of yours, get your Speedos on and take the plunge?
