AMMAN — The 12th edition of the Ayla Red Sea Half Marathon concluded on Friday with Jordanian runners taking advanced spots in an event which witnessed the participation of more than 2,000 runners from all over the world.

Nasser Shraideh, the chief commissioner of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority, gave the starting signal at the Ayla Oasis project for the 21km, 10km Fun Run and 4.2km Children’s Race.

Lina Al Kurd, the general manager of Run Jordan, told The Jordan Times it was a success.

“This year the event is under the slogan “Run for a Cause” to highlight an important aspect of all Run Jordan events, with 20 per cent of the ticket sales go to charity. We thank everyone who worked on making this event a success especially the families who came and enjoyed such a great event,” she said.

“Also, this year Run Jordan established cooperation agreements with several societies that cater for the physically handicapped in various parts of the Kingdom including: Al Yasmeen Society for the Down syndrome, the Disabled Child Care Society in Irbid in addition to Ajyal Society for the physically handicapped based in Aqaba,” she added.

According to Kurd, two new trophies have been added to the children’s race categories for the first place winner in the wheelchair category and the Down’s syndrome category.
