Doha College 10km run on November 16


THE second annual Doha College 10km run will take place on November 16.

Already 500 people have signed up to enjoy the two 5km laps around the Aspire Zone.

David Thompson, the race organiser, explained, “The Doha College 10km is a true community event open to anyone who is 16 and over on race day. It is all about getting out and being part of a mass event.

It doesn’t matter if you run, jog or walk.” “The run is self financing and the QR200 entry fee includes a t-shirt, breakfast and chip timing. There are prizes for the fastest three in each age and gender group, and any runner might win a prize in the free raffle, “ added Thompson.

Moreover, there will be goodies for the volunteers also. “There will also be a raffle for our volunteers. We expect over 100 volunteers on the day and they are as much a part of the event as the runners are. Without them, the race cannot go on.” With medical expertise from Aspetar and the full support of the staff at Aspire, this is expected to become one of Qatar’s leading sporting events.

The event is also becoming known internationally with several runners coming over from the UAE and one runner even coming from Japan.

There are a few places left but Thompson warned runners not to leave registration too late.

“We have to strictly limit numbers to ensure safety.All registration is online and there are no entries on the day.”
