What will happen in Qatar on Dec. 9, 2017?!
Families, running enthusiasts and go green supporters across Qatar can look forward to getting their running shoes on this December as the much-anticipated Al Dana Green Run hosted by Doha Bank returns for its 13th edition with a bigger and better line-up of race categories.
Taking place on Saturday, 9th December at Aspire Zone, the annual run will cover a 3 km circuit around Khalifa Stadium as it gathers men, women, children and families from around the country who will put their best foot forward for a cleaner, greener tomorrow.
The Al Dana Green Run is hosted every year by Doha Bank to build participation and awareness on environmental protection among people in Qatar. A widely attended community event, the annual run attracts participation from people of all age groups, with more than 5000 people taking part in the event last year.
Al Dana Green Run is the biggest Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event undertaken by Doha Bank, and derives its name from Al Dana Savings Scheme, the bank’s flagship savings account scheme.
Doha Bank is keen on organizing the Al Dana race this year to emphasize solidarity and loyalty to achieve Qatar Vision 2030 and its future goals while cherishing Qatar’s national identity. This year’s activities include competitions for public participation, all of which come in an authentic heritage form.
The race has been redesigned with the addition of new features designed to meet the needs of the masses, including families and others. The race offers the public the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of cultural offerings and is a source of inspiration for building an authentic culture of innovation in Qatar.
The slogan “Tamim Al Majd” will be added to publications as one of the expressions of unity and support among all members of Qatari society.
