UAE Healthy Kidney 10K


Join NYRR and the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates to celebrate the 10th annual UAE Healthy Kidney 10K. The event offers something for everyone—thrilling performances from some of the world's top athletes, a fast course for runners chasing PRs, a great cause to inspire them all, and excellent giveaways including a technical shirt for every registered entrant and fantastic raffle prizes.

New this year: The race will have both men's and women's professional fields, with equal prize money, and all will be eligible for the Zayed Bonus, awarded to any winner who breaks the course record (men: 27:35, Leonard Patrick Komon, 2011; women: 30:44, Lornah Kiplagat, 2002).

The UAE Healthy Kidney 10K benefits the National Kidney Foundation in honor of Sheikh Zayed. Runners can further support the Foundation by making a donation or joining Team Kidney to create a personal fundraising page. Click here to learn more.
