NREC hosts Kuwait Cy­cling Or­ga­ni­za­tion’s Cy­cleague event at Souq Sharq

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

The Na­tional Real Es­tate Com­pany (NREC), one of the lead­ing real es­tate com­pa­nies in the Mid­dle East and North Africa (MENA), hosted the Cy­cleague event held by the Kuwait Cy­cling Or­ga­ni­za­tion at SouqSharq Water­front.

Launched in 2015, the com­pet­i­tive ac­tiv­ity is a race com­pris­ing four stages where each stage takes place in one of Kuwait’s gov­er­norates in dif­fer­ent months of the year. The kick-off stage was hosted at NREC’s SouqSharq in Oc­to­ber un­der the theme, ‘Health.’ The three re­main­ing stages will be held in Jan­uary, March and May, each un­der a dif­fer­ent theme and gover­norate.

The route of the race is 5km long start­ing from Souq Sharq Water­front to Kuwait Tow­ers and back, with men con­tes­tants cy­cling 10 laps and women cy­cling 5 laps re­spec­tively. More than 140 par­tic­i­pants from across the Gulf re­gion took part in the race to win the ti­tle of stage one un­til the sec­ond stage tak­ing place in Jan­uary 2017.

NREC Group CEO, Mr Sa­muel Sidiqi, said: “We thank the or­ga­nizer for choos­ing our Souq Sharq Water­front devel­op­ment to kick off the race. We at NREC are ad­vo­cates of pro­mot­ing a health­ier and more bal­anced life­style, as well as sup­port­ing lo­cal ini­tia­tives that of­fer valu­able con­tri­bu­tions to our com­mu­nity.”

With a di­verse of­fer­ing for all tastes, Souq Sharq re­mains one of the most vis­ited sites in Kuwait, and a great venue for out­door events, all year round. Souq Sharq houses three dis­tin­guished of­fer­ings: The Shop­ping Cen­ter, which is home to a wide se­lec­tion of re­tail brand names, restau­rants, cafÈs and en­ter­tain­ment cen­ters; The Fish and Veg­etable Mar­ket, where the blend of old and new stands as a tes­ta­ment to a his­tor­i­cal record of qual­ity, fresh­ness and a vi­brant econ­omy; and fi­nally the Na­tional Yacht Club and Ma­rina, of­fer­ing a gateway for fish­ing ves­sels as well as ac­com­mo­dat­ing hun­dreds of pri­vate yacht docks.
