BIC’s Fitness on Track for cyclists and runners continues this Thursday after successful launch event
Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) hosted a successful launch of its Fitness on Track Batelco Ramadan Special last week, with runners and cyclists of all ages set to take to the track for this week’s edition, taking place on Thursday from 530pm to 830pm.
BIC’s Fitness on Track is an extensive programme for cyclists and runners of all ages who are looking to maintain or improve their physical fitness. The first three events are being held during Ramadan, with entry permitted for COVID-19 vaccinated and recovered individuals.
The all-new activity is dedicated to offering cyclists and runners of all ages the opportunity to train or simply take casual exercise within a safe and controlled environment at Bahrain’s world-renowned Formula 1 circuit, with cycling and running taking place on separate track layouts. Cyclists will be riding their bikes along BIC’s 3.543-kilometre Outer Track, while runners and walkers will be utilising the 2.554km Inner Track. There is also a dedicated area for children’s cycling.
Facilities provided on site include food and beverage trucks available from sunset onwards, water stations kindly provided by Arwa and a prayer area.
The programme’s launch event last week showed significant interest in the programme from cyclists, runners and walkers alike, with places for this week’s event already being snapped up quickly.
To ensure the safety of all participants, entry is restricted to vaccinated or COVID-19 recovered people only, as shown by the green badge on the BeAware app. Children under 18 may attend when accompanied by a qualifying adult. Each individual attending must also fill in the online health declaration sent in advance of the event.
All those wishing to take part must pre-register and pay in advance on BIC’s official website bahraingp.com. The cost to take part is BD2 for cyclists and BD1 for runners. Those under the age of 12 can participate for free if accompanied by a paying adult.
The Ramadan Special events are being sponsored by Batelco and also supported by Agility and American Express.
