Event Details:


Ooredoo today officially opened registration for the 2016 Ooredoo Marathon, as the company aimed to make next year’s race the biggest and best-ever.

Now in its fourth year, the Ooredoo Marathon will take place on Friday, 8 January 2016.

Ooredoo is working with a range of partners across Qatar to encourage more people to participate. In particular, the company is looking to encourage more kids to run in the children’s races and more people from all walks of life to get involved in their first race.

More than 3,250 participants registered for the event in 2015, and Ooredoo is using feedback from those runners to enhance the route, support services and the overall experience for 2016.

For 2016, the marathon will feature a range of courses for runners at all levels of experience, including a full marathon, half-marathon, 10km, 5km and a special children’s 3km fun-run.

The races are open to all, and prizes will be awarded to the best runners in a range of categories, based on age and gender. For 2016, the total prize purse is worth QR 1,000,000.

All funds raised by entry fees to the Ooredoo Marathon are donated to a range of worthy charities.
