Is it just us or have you also noticed the dip in temperatures? With cooler days not too far ahead, we’re already planning our outdoor activities and since the scorching summer will be long gone by October, a fun run is definitely in the books.
And just in time, Aspire Zone Foundation has opened registration for the 8th Annual Aspire Torch Staircase Run taking place on Friday October 25.
You get to race up to the 51st floor (yes, really) of the Torch tower in Aspire Zone and the event takes place from 1pm until 6pm.
This year’s event is open to community members from all fitness levels that fit in the age groups – the first is Junior Boys/Girls (eight to 11 years) and this category races up to the 19th floor.
In the next two categories, Adults Male/Female (18-39 years old) and Masters Male/Female (above 40 years), the race goes up to the 51st floor.
Also, since the race is happening this year in October which is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, you can get a free check-up through a van placed near The Torch. If you have any queries, a booth will be available to answer questions and give more information.
And it’s not all run and no games. There’s a community fan zone with entertainment activities and food and beverage options, too.
Don’t forget to register online.
We can’t promise we’ll reach the 51st floor, but we’ll definitely see you on the second.
QR200 (adults), QR100 (kids). Oct 25, 1pm-6pm. The Torch Doha, Aspire Zone, Al Waab, www.aspirezone.qa.
