25 January 2020, Doha, Qatar:   Doha was covered in color as The Color Run, presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First took place at Qatar Foundation’s Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) today.

 

The 2020 edition saw more than 10,000 participants running, walking and skipping their way around QNCC, making it the largest Color Run ever in Qatar. Color runners came to share their joy with their friends and families as they made their way round the 5km course. 

 

Nesreen Al-Rifai, Chief Communications Officer for Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, said: “We are so excited to once again see so many Color Runners at The Color Run presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First this year. Our aim is to raise awareness of the importance of staying active and its relevance to our overall physical and mental health. We are happy to have succeeded in achieving this and contributing to the fulfilment of Qatar Foundation’s vision for community development.”

 

Color Runners took part in a lively warm-up before Dana Al-Ali, Weil Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) student and Your Health First Ambassador (YHF) officially raised the flag at the starting line seeing the first batch of participants set off from the start line at 8.30am. 

 

“The Color Run is such an exciting event. This is my second year participating and the energy is just amazing. Everyone is so positive and enthusiastic each year and I love seeing all the families and children making the most of the event. Each year it just gets better and better.” said Dana Al-Ali, YHF Ambassador and student of WCM-Q. 

 

The fun didn’t stop at the finish line, with the larger-than-life Finish Festival providing the perfect post-5k party as thousands of Color Runners celebrated with their friends and families with world-famous colorful throws. 

 

“I’ve participated in every Color Run since the beginning. And this year was by far the biggest. My friends and I look forward to it each year and we love coming out to celebrate this colorful day! It is so much fun, and we love it how each year the theme is different. This year is great: we all choose LOVE! We will be back again next year.” says Mohammed, a 6th time Color Runner.
