Register for the ‘Gulf Bank 642 Marathon’ on November 19
The ‘Gulf Bank 642 Marathon’ will be held on Saturday, 19 November 2016 starting in the morning. Registration is now open online at: www.gulfbank642marathon.com
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.
