Hitting the gym, taking up a sport and eating healthy are just some of the baby steps that most people take to get fit.

But did you know that abandoning the luxury of your car and opting for the public transport instead and exploring your own city could also direct you in that direction?

That’s not all, it could also help you win Dh10,000.

Yes, the ‘Detour City Hunt’, which will take place in Dubai on October 18, will have teams of two travelling the length and breadth of the city by foot, or public transport, and taking on various sporting challenges in a bid to win that cash prize.

Launched by Enoc and Detour Events Management, under the patronage of Dubai Sports Council, the event is aimed at creating health and environmental awareness within the community.

The event, which will kick-start at Burjuman Centre at 2pm, is open to 400 participants. It will culminate in the evening with an award ceremony, dinner and entertainment at a secret location that will be disclosed during the course of the contest. More info
