I was informed by Kuwaiti fitness expert and founder of Aymstrong, Yousef AlQanai, that they are organizing a big marathon in November, where participants can choose the distance they wish to run based on their stamina and fitness level; four choices are there (100 KM, 42KM, 21KM, 10KM). The Base camp will be located at the northern desert of Kuwait right at the start of Road 80. Runners will be provided a bus transportation service that will transport them from Kuwait Towers to the Base camp and back.
Along the marathon, food and beverage facilities will be available, cool. This is the first professional in Kuwait I believe, though I hope they make sure that all roads are closed and provide police patrols and paramedics.
When: November 3rd, 2012
Where: Northern desert of Kuwait at the start of Road 80
