Ooredoo Opens Registration for the 2024 Edition of its Gold Status Doha Marathon

Doha, Qatar

Ooredoo, a key supporter of national sporting excellence, is pleased to announce that registration is now open for runners wishing to take part in the Ooredoo Doha Marathon 2024.

The event, scheduled for Friday 16 February 2024, will bring together more than 15,000 participants competing over multiple distances. The full marathon (42.2KM) will be staged alongside a half marathon (21.1KM), 10KM and 5KM race, with these four distances open to adult participants.

There will also be a mini marathon event for Juniors aged 13-17 which will take place over 5KM, as well as a 1KM race for children under the age of 13.

Further upgrading the profile of the most popular annual sporting event in Qatar, Ooredoo has partnered with UK-based sports agency GW Active to ensure it meets stringent international standards.

This year, the Ooredoo Doha Marathon holds Gold status on the international marathon schedule, meaning runners can qualify for international marathon events such as the Boston Marathon.

Competitors are invited to register online as soon as possible to avoid the disappointment of missing out on being able to take part in this exceptional event, with entries expected to sell out. The entry process on the official website is very easy to follow and by signing up four or more runners in one session, entrants can secure a 25% discount on registration fees.

As well as the incredible opportunity to take part in the Ooredoo Doha Marathon, runners will receive a goodie bag containing a bespoke race t-shirt as well as their bib number and timing chip. Race packs can be collected from designated locations (to be communicated via the website and participant email) between 13th and 15th February 2024, from 3:00 pm–11:00 pm.

Sabah Rabiah Al Kuwari – Director PR, Sponsorship and CSR at Ooredoo – said: “At

Ooredoo, we firmly believe in the power of sports to bring communities together and inspire greatness. The Ooredoo Doha Marathon is not just a race; it’s a celebration of determination, passion and the human spirit.
