Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

The ‘Gulf Bank 642 Marathon’ will be held on Satur­day, 19 Novem­ber 2016 start­ing in the morn­ing. Regis­tra­tion is now open on­line at: www.gulf­bank642­

In or­der to ap­peal to all lev­els and age groups in Kuwait, this year’s marathon will in­clude four dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories of races to walk or run. The cat­e­gories in­clude: Fam­ily Fun Run for new begin­ners (5KM); the Souq Run for reg­u­lar run­ners (10KM), the Half Marathon for more ad­vanced run­ners (21KM); and the Full Marathon (42KM). The route for the race will start and end at Souq Sharq and take place on Gulf Road, pass­ing by Kuwait Tow­ers, the Gulf Bank head of­fice, and other land­marks. We will again be co­or­di­nat­ing with rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties to close the road to en­sure the safety of the walk­ers and run­ners.

Last year we achieved a record turnout for a sport­ing event and we hope to see you all again this year. The ‘Gulf Bank 642 Marathon’ re­mains only road race in Kuwait to have three of its longer dis­tance race cat­e­gories ac­cred­ited by the As­so­ci­a­tion of In­ter­na­tional Marathons and Dis­tance Races (AIMS) and the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Ath­let­ics Fed­er­a­tions (IAAF Ath­let­ics), mean­ing that those races ap­peared in the in­ter­na­tional cal­en­dar of races.
