Vodafone Qatar has been announced as a Platinum Sponsor of the Dolphin Energy Doha Dash, set to take place on February 12, 2013. The Losail International Circuit will play host to The Dolphin Energy Doha Dash in celebration of Qatar National Sport Day.

The event will include a 5km and 3km timed race, plus a ladies' walk and the Vodafone sponsored 1km Mini Doha Dash. The Dolphin Energy Doha Dash gives participants of all ages and abilities the opportunity to follow in the tyre tracks of Motor GP stars.
As part of the event's commitment to providing healthy activities for children, entry into the 1km Mini Doha Dash is free and Vodafone are calling on schools, clubs and individuals in Doha to register their children for the event. Vodafone is also inviting its business partners from across Doha to bring their staff to participate in the event and enjoy the day with their families.
"Vodafone is very supportive of His Highness the Heir Apparent Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani's initiative to promote sports and fitness in Qatar," said Richard Daly, CEO, Vodafone Qatar. "We look forward to engaging the public and our own employees in the planned activities that will help to improve their health and fitness," he added.
All runners will receive an official race t-shirt and medal as well as enjoying a great family day out in the Festival Village. On the day, alongside title sponsors Dolphin Energy, Vodafone will be present in the Festival Village, situated in the pit garages at the circuit, and will be hosting a number of fun activities for all those who attend.
Event organisers, Professional Sports Group, are encouraging participants to bring their friends and family to watch and cheer them on as they cross the finish line.
Jamie Cunningham, CEO Of Professional Sports Group, said, "We are absolutely delighted to welcome Vodafone Qatar on board as a Platinum Sponsor of the very first Dolphin Energy Doha Dash."
"The event was designed to provide leading companies in Qatar with a turnkey solution for National Sport Day. This is an opportunity for their employees to participate in a world class sporting event, with fun activities for the family, and an important charitable component for the community. We hope that other companies will follow Vodafone's lead," he added.
The Dolphin Energy Doha Dash has been created to support the vision behind the Qatar National Sport Day, and aims to promote a healthier lifestyle and raise money for charity. The official charity of the 2013 event is Reach Out To Asia (ROTA), which will receive 25% of the total registration fee.
