Students between the ages of 8 to 10 years will participate in the first group on a separate race length of 1 km, the second group of students will compete for the 3 km run, and the third group of students will participate in a 5 km race. The winners in each category will be felicitated for their efforts on a podium which will be built at the venue.

Many other entertaining events and activities will be available during the marathon such as the free art stand, heritage village, challenging games , walking in the circuit, Jiu-Jitsu and the opportunity to test one’s body mass index, plus an additional set of tests for all students participating in the marathon.

ADEC’s Marathon offers a new opportunity which enables Yas marina circuit to acquaint the younger generation on the importance of sports, while encouraging them to practice and improve their fitness level.

Participation in this social sport activity is available for Emiratis and expatriates students from the fourth school year, all the way up to high school. Participations are divided into three categories, where students participate in similar groups in terms of age and individual physical ability.
