To kick 2015, Aspire Zone has organised a number of exciting events and activities throughout January for children of all ages, their families and the wider community, as part of its ongoing mission to engage the whole local community.
Aspire Zone remains dedicated to organising events that inspire people to get fit, spend time with their family and for them to also participate in activities that foster sharing, learning and fun.
After the resounding success of the inaugural GCC Charity Bike Show, Aspire Zone has organised the 2nd Annual GCC Charity Bike Show to be held this Friday 16 January 2015 at the Aspire Zone grounds behind the Torch Hotel. Aspire Zone has confirmed that over 1,000 bikers from the six GCC countries will be participating in one of the biggest motorbike shows that the region has ever seen.
Hundreds of spectators are expected to flock to this unique charity parade to see a wide range of motorbikes ranging from vintage ones to the latest models out on display. The event will also showcase custom bikes along with different bikes from different classes from all over the GCC, and will be hosted by the Soul Riders MC for the second time in a row.
Further, to engage school students Aspire Zone has organised Kids Run in The Park, a monthly activity where school students run a specially designed 2.5 km course throughout the Aspire Zone grounds. The next session will take place this Saturday 17 January 2015, and is an ideal opportunity for students to bond with their peers while still being active. There are two race categories: one for students aged from 10-15 at 8 am, while the other race is for stronger kids over 13 years and starts at 8:45 am.
Also taking place this Saturday is the Third Race of the Aquathon Series from 6 am to 12 pm (noon). The Aquathon series takes place every year at Aspire Zone and consists of four races spread across several months, with each race including a swim at the Dome Pool and a run around the Aspire Zone grounds.
This event is open to people of all ages and abilities, aged eight and over, and features adult categories where participants run for 5 km and swim for 500m, as well as a kids category where youngsters run between 1.5-3 km and swim between 100m-300m according to their age group.
And in an effort to continue inspiring today’s youth in Qatar to lead happy, healthy and active lifestyles, Aspire Zone has once again launched its Learn2Ride initiative. The initiative is aimed at teaching youngsters to learn how to ride a bicycle or to help them improve their cycling ability. The locally based programme is aimed at children who are eight and above, and with a keen interest in cycling.
In addition to sporting activities, Aspire Zone has once again rolled out its new season for Kids Art in The Park 2014/15 which kicked off on 20 December 2014 and will run every Saturday through to 21 March 2015 from 11 am to 1 pm. Kids Art In The Park consists of a number of fun, educational and creative artistic activities that children can try under the art tent, at the Aspire Park behind the main playground.
