Both residents and travellers flock to the extremely well kept Masdar City Running and Cycling Track, at Masdar’s Al Mamsha trail. The family-friendly running track starts at Masdar Park and stretches for 5.6 kilometres around the city.

Winding its way around the beautiful Yas Marina, the impressive Yas Marina Circuit is one of the world’s most epic race tracks, home to the Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
