UAE office workers ditch suits for running shoes in relay race

More than 500 corporate employees ditched their suits for running shoes on Wednesday to run around Dubai's commercial district. Emirates NBD, Dubai Airports HSBC and Arabian Radio Network (ARN) were among some of the top firms competing. This was all part of the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay - a global event that sees participants complete 10 mile-long laps (1.6km). The Dubai course, which was won by RPM at a time of 53:31, took place at the Dubai International Financial Centre. The race now moves on to Sydney.
