Doha College Race

The Doha College 5km and 10km Race has been in operation since 2000.  The first edition of this popular race was held at The Pearl attracting 300 participants for its 10km competition.  The race then moved to Aspire Zone, which boasts the iconic Torch Hotel and world class sports facilities, expanding into a separate 5km and 10km race attracting over 1000 runners from the Qatar community and beyond.

Doha College has been supported by Aspire Zone to ensure a quality and seamless event.  Over the last three years, we have been privileged to collaborate with the IAU 50km Ultramarathon World Championships, where athletes have attended and competed in our event, inspiring our many runners.
