The 2022 Ooredoo Doha Marathon, a much-anticipated fixture on Doha’s sporting calendar, was held at Lusail City for the first time. The starting gun was fired at 6.30am for the full and half marathons, with runners taking a route through the stunning scenery of Lusail City.
Almost 2000 runners took their place at the start line, with 1745 participants taking part in the virtual event held from 8-11 March 2022.
The Marathon saw professional runners who had flown in from overseas especially for the event competing alongside local running enthusiasts.
This year’s event featured the AlAdaam category for the first time, dedicated to Qatari runners and with prizes for winning competitors in the category.
In line with Ooredoo’s corporate social responsibility strategy and its commitment to supporting the communities in which it operates, funds generated from the Ooredoo Doha Marathon each year go directly to chosen charitable organisations.
Qatar Foundation’s Ability Friendly Program – a programme dedicated to offering sporting opportunities to those with specific needs – is this year’s recipient of some of the funds.
