Ooredoo – a staunch supporter of sporting events in Qatar – has hosted a final press conference ahead of the upcoming Doha Marathon by Ooredoo 2023, celebrating the companies confirmed as sponsors of Doha’s most popular sporting event.  

The press conference was held at Ooredoo Tower in West Bay, Doha, with senior representatives of the telco leader and each of the named sponsors in attendance. 

Moza Khalid Al-Muhannadi – Director CSR, Sponsorship and Media at Ooredoo - briefed the audience on updates for this year’s marathon, especially the new and improved race course.

According to Al-Muhannadi, the event is a complete sell-out in all categories, meaning 8,000 people will be running the Doha Marathon by Ooredoo this year. This awesome event kicks off at Parade Pavilion, The Emir's Grandstand- Al Corniche, with runners then heading towards Katara, Lusail, and back to Al Corniche. 

What to expect at the Ooredoo Doha Marathon 2023?

The full marathon will start at 6:15 am, followed by the half marathon at 7:00 am. The 10 km category will start at 8:30 am, while the 5 km category will start at 9:30 am. Finally, the 1 km category for kids will start at 10:30 am. 

The total prize pool this year is around QR1million for all categories, while all participants who finish their category will get a medal.              

Al-Muhannadi also announced that the 2023 event will include a raffle draw offering an SUV as a prize.

All participants who cross the finish line in the 5km, 10km, 21km and 42km categories will enter the raffle draw to win a Volkswagen T-Roc. 

Moza Khalid Al-Muhannadi – Director CSR, Sponsorship and Media at Ooredoo, said: “We’re rightfully proud that the Doha Marathon by Ooredoo is consistently one of the most popular events on Doha’s calendar, year after year, but this pride must be shared with our invaluable sponsors, without whom we would be unable to present the race. We work tirelessly to find, establish and develop partnerships with entities who share the values for which we are known, and also share our commitment to supporting sports and the communities in which we operate. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the sponsors whose names appear alongside ours at this year’s Marathon, and we look forward to putting on yet another incredible event for Doha and for everyone taking part. Best of luck in the race!”

Mohammed Issa Al Fadala, Qatar Athletics Federation President, said: “The preparations for the marathon have been completed after everyone made great efforts to present the best possible event. We invite everyone to come along, whether running or spectating, to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, especially since the race this year will also witness the participation of a number of elite runners. Good luck to all the participants in the race, and we hope everyone has an awesome day!”
