On October 18, ENOC and the Detour Events Management company, under the patronage of the Dubai Sports Council, are throwing a unique challenge to residents to explore Dubai via buses, water buses and the Metro with various sport activities planned along the way.

The team with the best scores will win a prize of Dh10,000.
