More than 2,000 free events have been held as part of the second annual Dubai Fitness Challenge, and residents made sure they got a sweat on one more time before the end of the campaign.

The festival of fitness, which was enjoyed by nearly one million people last year, encouraged people to take part in exercise for 30 minutes a day, for 30 days.

It concluded today with a carnival at Dubai's Burj Park where competitors - old and young - took part in rowing, an obstacle course and tug of war among other activities.
