The national sports facility of Qatar, The Aspire Zone Foundation organised a 4km fun run at the Khalifa Stadium to mark the occasion. RFID Timing’s HDD system was used to time the event as part of a partnership between the Aspire Zone Foundation and StuWeb Race Timing.
The event was unique being completely free and attracting a diverse range of participants. A truly multicultural event; the entries were received in many different languages and the runners ranged from Qatar’s cleaners to chief executives.
The high level of community support made first National Sports Day event a great success, fueling the desire for more events. The next race planned by the Aspire Zone Foundation is a tower run in the famous Torch Hotel ascending 51 floors on the 31st March 2012.
