The solo event, Alone, A Run Around Qatar (#RunAroundQatar) is more than halfway complete, with resident Pierre Daniel having already completed more than 240 km as of the end of stage 3 of his challenge.

It is Day 5 in the morning and Pierre is still moving. Day 3 was the longest day of Pierre’s 7-day journey, marking the start of his World Record-breaking attempt from North to South. Track Pierre's journey live by following or on social media: #RunAroundQatar.
