Whew. So ecstatic to read and blog about the event — Kuwait’s 1st Half-Marathon Run! I’d be happier, if I could join it, but I’m pregnant! Anyway, I am sure that there will be a 2nd run, and more to follow.

I’ve been planning to join such activity to help me tone my body, and of course, to help raise funds by running for a cause. It’s only now that I found out such event in Kuwait through the portal, Kuwait Charity Run (KCR). It is a nonprofit organization founded “to encourage community members, runners, and athletes to raise funds and donations for good causes and engage in outdoor sports activities”.

KCR teamed up with Bayt Abdullah Children’s Hospice to raise funds and awareness within the Kuwait community. Bayt Abdullah Children’s Hospice “is a dream based on the promise made to Abdullah which will allow children with terminal conditions to be looked after at home or in the hospice itself”.

About the Race:

The race will take place on Saturday, March 19th 2011 at 8am on the Gulf Road.

If you’re one who’s keen on joining this event, you may now register and donate for the race at the following locations:

C Club Address:
Salmiyah, Bida Cooperative Street.

Make sure you have read the conditions of entry prior to registration.Well, it’s a must, too, that you have comfortable and quality running shoes.


I’d be informing my hubby about the marathon run. He might as well be interested to participate. That would mean buying him a new pair of running shoes. He has been telling me that he’d buy at the mall, but, I told him “only if you’re going to use them”. Should he join the event, we should be scouting for running shoes pretty soon, either at the mall or online since we already tried on purchasing items via online, and they arrived safely.

Interestingly, I saw this picture of running shoe from Amazon, and I’d show this to hubby as soon as he gets home, for he might like it.

It looks like his old running shoe when we were still in the Philippines, only that he got it from Greenhills Shopping Mall.
