As the countdown begins for the fifth Ooredoo Marathon, which will take place in one weeks’ time, on Friday, 13 January, Ooredoo has announced that the events registration deadline has been extended.

To enable as many people as possible to take part in the event, registration will now close at 11.59pm on Saturday 7 January (online) and at 9pm for Ooredoo Marathon Booth registrations. People wishing to sign-up before the deadline can do so by visiting or one of the dedicated Ooredoo Marathon booths at City Center or Villaggio Mall. Marathon Booths will be open from 9am – 9pm.

So far the company has announced that over 1,200 runners have registered to take part in the annual event, which this year will raise money for the charity Reach Out To Asia. This year the Ooredoo Marathon will feature a 10km run, half-marathon, full marathon and special children’s 3km and 1km fun run. The route, which will start at the Museum of Islamic Arts Park, will follow the Doha Corniche and prizes will be awarded to the best runners in a range of categories, based on age and gender.
