Popular Event to be Rescheduled to Ensure Safety of All Participants
In the interests of health and safety for all participants, Ooredoo has announced the Ooredoo Doha Marathon 2021 has been postponed.
The much-anticipated annual event, which draws thousands of international and local runners and spectators each year, was scheduled to take place in January 2021.
While restrictions have eased since full lockdown earlier in the year, organisers took the view that postponing until a later date would allow the best – and safest – possible event for all involved.
A new date will be shared with all parties as soon as it has been decided.
Sabah Rabiah Al-Kuwari, Director PR at Ooredoo, said: “The Ooredoo Doha Marathon is one of the most popular events on the sporting calendar in Doha, and it’s an incredible event every year. It’s an honour for us to support it as part of our commitment to promoting a healthy, active lifestyle for all, which is a key feature of our corporate social responsibility strategy. While some sporting events are now going ahead, it was decided that in order to ensure everyone’s health and safety – but still put on an event of the calibre for which the Marathon is known – it’s in everyone’s interests to postpone until a later date. We look forward to sharing this new date with everyone as soon as we can, and wish everyone the best of luck with their training in the meantime!”
