Posted 7 April 2017 · Add Comment

Jazeera Airways has announced its title sponsorship of the first-of-its-kind RunKuwait 230-kilometer run, from the northern to the southern borders of the country.

The run, which will commence on 8 April 2017 and end on 13 April 2017, sets the benchmark for all runners to aspire to as it will demonstrate hard work, strength and perseverance to outrun one’s limitations. 

Jazeera Airways, together with RunKuwait, encourages people from Kuwait’s diverse communities to take more than just a step towards engaging in active sports and adapting a rewarding lifestyle.

Only six out of the original 120 applicants that braved the professional vigorous trainings held in preparation for this lengthy race, had successfully pushed through.  The 6-day program will start at the northern borders of Kuwait, where the 40-km run is scheduled to start. Day 2 will take place at road Shaikh Jaber Al Ahmad AlSabah (80) to where participants will head out for their 40 kilometers toward south, and Day 3 will be a 30-kilometer run from Kuwait Petroleum Corporation at Shuwaikh Beach to Juimerah Hotel at Messila allowing members of the public to join in for a 10-km support run from Kuwait Towers to Marina Mall while enjoying the welcoming sights. Moving forward, Day 4 will consist of an 93-kilometer run starting from Juimerah Hotel at Messila to next to Khiran resorts at Khiran area, followed by Day 5 which will be a continuation to the 93 kilometer day, given the fact that the distance will be difficult to finish in one day, and the rest of the day is dedicated as a rest day for the triumphant runners to revitalize and regain their last stretch of energy for the final day which will be a 27-kilometer run from Khiran Resorts heading to the southern borders of Kuwait, the finish line.

“Sponsoring the RunKuwait 230-kilometer race is an obvious choice for us at Jazeera Airways as we aim at empowering young athletes and encourage the public to benefit from such significant avenues to stay healthier with lasting positive results. This run and its participants reflect the characteristics of our brand’s DNA as achieving a tough goal with steadfastness, passion for hard work and focus have led the company to its glory today,” said Dr. Mohamed Barakat, VP Marketing and Product at Jazeera Airways. “As we witness the rise of a growing runners’ community, we especially congratulate all of the participants that endured the physically and mentally challenging qualification rounds and served as an inspiration to all of us. It truly is an honor to sponsor this remarkable platform that recognises individuals whose indisputable self-determination and perseverance overrides their comfort zones,” added Dr. Barakat.
