The Doha College race has been in operation since 2011, with the first edition held at The Pearl, when 300 participants crossed the start line in a 10km competition. The race has grown significantly over the years and moved to Aspire Zone, home of the iconic Torch Hotel, Aspire Park and other world-class sporting facilities. The anticipated yearly event now offers both a 5km and 10km race, plus a children's 1km race, and attracts over 1,000 runners from the Qatar community and beyond.
Highlights of the 2020 race
The ninth edition of the Doha College 10K and 5K Race was the fastest in its history, with both events for males clocking new race records. In an event full of firsts, the race introduced a children’s race over 1 km, in which nearly 150 children aged 6 to 11 competed for the trophy.
Ran at night for the first time, the race drew hundreds of athletes, from novice runners to decorated Olympians, including top international champion Liz McColgan. Another novelty for this edition was the track – the event took place for the first time at the spectacular Losail International Circuit, which offered top class facilities to both participants and supporters. It had not one, but two race records broken, by three athletes (see results below).
