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