Limber up for Striders Half Marathon and 10k.
Get your running gear on to explore Yas Island on foot this Friday with the ever-popular Striders Half Marathon and 10k.
Returning for its 34th edition, the event, starting at Yas Waterworld, has a reputation for being one of the fastest in the UAE, offering participants the chance to target personal best times.
And runners have the chance to relax and cool down with complimentary access to Yas Waterworld afterwards.
Organisers Gulf Multi Sport are trying to increase participation in community sporting events and in the week of World Diabetes Day are encouraging people of all abilities, even if they don’t consider themselves runners, to participate in one of the possible contests.
Continuing in the spirit of encouraging beginners to register for their first timed run the event has, for the first time, introduced the option of registering for the Half Marathon as a team. The Team Relay provides the opportunity for teams of 4 to each complete 5k whilst participating as corporate and social teams in male only, female only and mixed categories.
In addition to free entry to Yas Waterworld, all participants will receive complimentary on-course photography and a selection of incredible goodies including a kit bag, technical running t-shirt and medal.
