Kuwait Marathon: 3 November 2012

Kuwait Marathon is a footrace taking place on the 3rd of November 2012 for the first time in Kuwait. It will be held in the northern desert of Kuwait on hard sand and varied terrain. There will be several Marathon Distances held on the same day. Visit KMarathon for more details.

The website says that the event is being managed by Aymstrong of Kuwait (their website is under construction Who are they?). (Do you think they meant "Aimstrong"?)  Registration fees are between 7KD and 60KD.  I don't know if I agree with their concept of "Prizes for Female participants (for full run)  will be determined based on the number of female participants in the Full Marathon."

Hey - we're in Kuwait.  When did dollars become the national currency?  And yet, entrance fees on the website are in Dinars.  Hmm.... innnnteresting.  So let's say maximum 60KD/$213 entrance fee (for the full marathon) and you may win up to 562KD/$2000.  Let's try to remain consistent, shall we? (It is the editor in me.)

I do think that it is great that Kuwait is getting so much more fitness-minded!
