DC launches 8th an­nual edi­tion of 5km and 10km race

Gulf Times Community - - COVER STORY -

Doha Col­lege (DC) is all set to or­gan­ise 5km and 10km race. Sup­ported by As­pire Zone, the DC Race at­tracts large num­bers of par­tic­i­pants, start­ing from 300 back in 2011 to around 1,000 in more re­cent years. “The pur­pose of the DC Race is to en­cour­age health, fit­ness and fun in our com­mu­nity,” said Dr St­ef­fen Sommer, Prin­ci­pal of DC. “Our school en­gages the young gen­er­a­tion into an ac­tive and en­er­getic take on healthy liv­ing, and we look for­ward to wel­com­ing a great num­ber of run­ners in No­vem­ber.” Greg Evans, or­gan­iser of 2017 race, said, “The DC Race has been go­ing from strength to strength and this edi­tion is ex­pected to be the big­gest and best yet. I would urge run­ners to reg­is­ter early, as there were a lot of dis­ap­pointed peo­ple last year who missed out on par­tic­i­pa­tion. The com­mu­nity spirit that arises on the day, cou­pled with the sense of achieve­ment that the run­ners get, make the race a very wor­thy event.” This year’s race will bring new and sea­soned run­ners to the As­pire, on No­vem­ber 16, with races start­ing from 7am.
