Since the issuance of the Emiri degree in 2011 announcing the introduction of Qatar’s National Sports Day, Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) has been keen to encourage community participation in this important occasion through hosting a unique series of entertaining activities for families and all members of the community. The range of activities available this year at Aspire Zone reflects the uniqueness that has characterised AZF’s National Sports Day programme during the last four years.

Aspire Academy, Aspetar and Aspire Logistics – AZF will be organising a number of exclusive activities for families and all members of the community to enjoy. Many of these activities are only available at Aspire. They expect to attract thousands of sports enthusiasts, as well as individuals, government entities, and private sector institutions, who come to Aspire Zone every year and contribute to making this day special and creating a fun and enjoyable environment.


  •     Fun Run – AZF’s unique annual activity


Visitors can take part in a 3K Fun run around Aspire Zone which starts at the fans entrance at Aspire Dome, and crosses the Aspire Zone precinct, enabling those who take part to explore the park. Registration begins at 7am and is open for all age groups.

 

  • How you measure up against star athletes

The ASPIRE Academy Sport Science Department will be running a series of “come and try” sport science testing activities on the Aspire Dome Indoor Athletics Track, taking place from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Such activities include the 20m sprint where visitors can see how fast they are compared to Usain Bolt; throwing speed which tests whether people can match that of a Major League baseball pitcher; vertical jump which gives people the opportunity to see if they can fly like Michael Jordan; and a 200m bike race, where participants can compete with a family member or a friend. Upon completing each activity, all participants receive a certificate detailing their personal scores against those of “Star Athletes” to compare themselves against.
