The Dean of Students of Tishk International University arranged a Marathon for women on May 22nd, 2021. Marathons have many physical and mental benefits. It has also been linked to improved blood circulation, reduced weight, better blood pressure, higher motivation, and stress reduction. Despite the countless benefits of this sport, not much attention is given to it in our society.

This event was organized to raise health awareness through running, and to also highlight the importance developing the sports sector in our community. The marathon was held in the Running Track of Sami Abdulrahman Park, and the total distance of the marathon was 6 km. The event was successful and beneficial to all the participants and medals of success was awarded to the first, second, and third winners.

Running is known to be very good for you, and besides the health advantages, running events are an opportunity for people to get together and inspire others to exercise every once in a while. Through this event, Tishk International University celebrate the joys of running and offer individuals who would like to experience the atmosphere and spirit of this sport a chance to compete and have fun.
