(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Aspire Zone is set to host Qatar's first ever 50-kilometre ultra-marathon, the International 6:50 Race. The long-distance race, which will take place on March 6, will challenge residents to conquer Aspire Zone and step out of their comfort zones



The route will feature a 5km circuit around Aspire Park, and runners will be required to complete ten laps to achieve the full distance.



The course will be measured by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races, and the event will have a Bronze label from the International Association of Ultra Runners



The ultra-marathon will start at 6pm and, with a deadlin of 12 midnight, runners will have six hours to complete the course.




Participants will also have the option of running fewer laps and completing shorter distances, including 20km, 30km and 40km



An increasingly popular sport, ultra-marathons are designed to push participants' physical and mental strengths to the limit.



Not for the faint-hearted, hard work, determination and endurance are needed to tackle the distance



Registration for the event is open to men and women aged 18 and over.



To sign up, or to find out more about the race, those interested can visit the website: www.aspirezone.qa/events
