Event organisers laid on a wide variety of activities in MIA Park, ensuring plenty of fun for all.
The annual Ooredoo Doha Marathon, an event inaugurated in 2013, was designed to encourage Qatari citizens and residents to embrace an active lifestyle and has grown into a much-anticipated event for experienced marathon runners, fitness enthusiasts and beginners alike.
It is now one of the most popular events on Qatar’s sporting calendar, attracting the cream of the international marathon crop, and is an exciting opportunity for Qatar-based runners to compete against international marathon professionals.
The marathon marks the start of a packed schedule of sporting events throughout the year, as Ooredoo continues to support Qatar’s drive to promote health and fitness amongst its citizens and residents.
In line with Ooredoo’s corporate social responsibility strategy and its commitment to supporting the communities in which it operates, all funds generated from the Ooredoo Doha Marathon 2019 will go directly to charitable organisations.
