DBRC runners, in order to focus the DBRC Facebook page and associated DBRC social events on the people who are actively running and training here in Doha, we are preparing to reboot the group on January 1, 2014. At that time, we will be removing everyone from the group and then adding back in the active members. Don't panic, please. It's very easy to demonstrate you're an active member.
A massive thank you to everyone at Sharq Village for organising today’s 17km / 8.5km race. Extremely well organized, with the entry fee being donated to charity. The race was a little longer than advertised but there were plenty of well-manned drink stops and encouragement along the way. A lovely mix of runners too, with everyone cheering each other on. It was what a ‘fun’ run should be about and welcome refreshments on finishing. Great job!!!!

May 2, 2012 - “How hard can it be?” Was the phrase to be heard amongst members of the Doha Bay Running Club, as news spread of the city’s first ever tower run.
In Qatar’s typical last-minute style preparations, the race was announced less than a month before it was due to be held, so there wasn’t going to be much anyone could do in preparation for their ascent of the 300m, 51-floor, Torch Tower.
