Come and test your fitness at the Emirates Dubai 7s

Functional Fitness at the Emirates Dubai 7s is back for its second year!

Taking place on the 1st-3rd of December 2023 at The Sevens Stadium's Pitch 3, WODON3 is an inclusive fitness competition that caters to the fitness elite right through to the social athlete who wants to push their limits in a fun filled weekend alongside their gym crew.

The need for WODON3 at the Dubai 7s was born out of the increasing synergy between fitness and the existing sports, rugby, netball and cricket, that bring unrivalled excitement to the event both for competitors and spectators.

In true Dubai 7s fashion, the fitness competition will be the ultimate platform for athletes to display teamwork, test their fitness and experience the good time festival vibes from morning until dusk.

WODON3 will bring a best in class event to the UAE where competitors can celebrate the hard work they put in training each day and show just what their body and mind are capable of on the competition floor.
