Doha Festival City to launch ‘Outdoor Leisure Trail’ on October 21st

By QLReporter

With winter months fast approaching, people have been keen to head outdoors for a dose of healthy living.

To celebrate the launch of its Outdoor Leisure Trail, Doha Festival City is inviting everyone from families to fitness lovers to come and enjoy the outdoors on 21st October 2017.

The 4.5km track surrounds the Mall, and includes a running and walking path, as well as an adjacent Cycling Lane with technical trail features specifically designed for mountain bikes.

From 8:00 am – 12 pm, visitors can bike, walk and run around the track and enjoy the event village with extreme bike shows, fun family activities and festival style entertainment for free. All participants will be receiving a race pack upon registration.

Watch the stunt riders at the XTORK BMX Show

Extreme sports experts, XTÔRK, will be hosting a BMX area where you can watch professional riders perform jaw-dropping stunts. There are three shows lined up, each 15 minutes long.

The professional BMX riders will also be giving audiences a special chance to try out the BMX bike and stunts under their personal supervision.

Try out the track for yourself

Throughout the morning there will be sessions for all abilities, so come and compete against your friends or meander around the track at your own pace.

There will be 4.5 and 9 km running sessions, 4.5, 9, 13.5 km cycling sessions as well as a 4.5 km walking session.

We recommend bringing your own equipment to enjoy the fun, however a limited number of bikes, helmets, elbow and knee pads are available to rent. Please note, helmets are mandatory for all cyclists.

Bicycle Training Station - for the learners

For the little ones who are still learning, there will be children’s area for bike tutorials from the professionals. With or without stabilisers, starting anew or improving balance – we’ve got you covered.
