NBK praised the ef­forts ex­erted by all par­ties in­volved and their sup­port­ive role dur­ing the race over the past years. The Min­istry of In­te­rior de­ployed pa­trols along the race route to en­sure that it runs smoothly. Med­i­cal emer­gency task force as­signed by the Min­istry of Health was present around the race vicin­ity and was fully pre­pared for any emer­gen­cies.

The Kuwaiti As­so­ci­a­tion of Ath­let­ics Fed­er­a­tions pro­vided its full sup­port to NBK’s Walkathon, with over 100 ref­er­ees, spread­ing along the rac­ing route to ar­bi­trate the event. The ref­er­ees were pro­vided with ve­hi­cles sta­tioned in var­i­ous spots on the Gulf Road, in or­der to closely fol­low the race and make their de­ci­sions trans­par­ently. By the end of the race, NBK held the clos­ing cer­e­mony to award this cat­e­gory’s win­ners, pro­vid­ing them with a range of di­verse and en­ter­tain­ing pro­grams and con­tests, in­clud­ing the dis­tri­bu­tion of prizes and surprises.
