Reminder: Corniche to be closed this morning

Baba Tamim

Ooredoo Marathon 2016

Motorists, beware. It’s going to be a busy weekend for Qatar’s Corniche.

Due to the Ooredoo Marathon today, the thoroughfare will be closed to traffic from 6:30am to 11:30am.

Marathon spectators are requested to stand near the Corniche walkway to the MIA or at the many checkpoints lining the road to get an unobstructed view of runners.

Meanwhile, food trucks will be selling their wares to the public from 4pm to 10pm on the Corniche today and tomorrow as part of the Shop Qatar festival.

Additionally, fireworks shows will be held during both of these days at 8pm.

For those wanting to attend the fireworks shows, try to carpool and be sure to arrive early, as parking and traffic always gets congested in the run-up to such events.
