One of the most popular running events in the UAE calendar makes its return for the new season when the Asics/ Go Sport Run Series kicks off with the first of five races.
To be held on Friday, October 14 at The Track Golf Clubhouse, Meydan, Race One will be an opportunity to get active, have fun and chase points for prizes.
Whether you’re a returning runner who has taken part in the series before, or a newcomer getting your first taste of the action, the series offers various distances to cater to everyone.
Age categories of under nine, nine to 12, 13 to 15 and 16 to 18 are available for the shortest distance, the 3km, while adults under 19, 19 to 29, 30 to 39, 40 to 49 and 50 and over can step up to the longer 5km.
If you’re eager to test your endurance, the longest distances of 10km and 15km will challenge your fitness. The latter will be open, with age groups determined on the number of entries.
Following the races, a prize giving presentation will be held where first, second and third place finishers in each age group will receive a medal.
Everyone who finishes will also be awarded a medal, along with ranking points which will add up throughout the season to determine overall series winners, who will be awarded trophies and valuable prizes from sponsors. To qualify, participants must run in at least three of the five races during the season.
