Get ready to run the Ooredoo Marathon in 2014 - see if you have what it takes to complete the course and raise money for a good cause!
The Ooredoo Marathon will take place on 10 January 2014 – so get your running shoes on and start training now!
You have the chance to take part in a full marathon, half marathon or a 10 km route.
There is also got a children’s 1km fun run – so they can dress up, join in and get fit!
All funds raised through entry fees will be donated to a range of worthy causes, Ooredoo says.
Ooredoo is supporting a huge range of sporting activities in 2014, with loads of events, games and contests for you to join.
Why don't they just give out free sim cards and top up vouchers..
Very Tempting thinking of either the 3km or 10km!
Gud 1 Britexpat,,,,,,Also some talktime as new year bonus :)
How much for the registration fee? Any idea?
What registration! none talk about it, just participate on the proposed date and time that is all I think.
The website prompts you to register, and then log in, before it will tell you how much the cost is to run in the marathon.
The Ooredoo website says that it is a fundraiser, so the price shouldn't be too high. Maybe 100-200 riyals?
Has anyone registered and can give us an idea of the price?
I can see the registration costs right up in the thread which seems to have been updated today.
