A ‘Family Gala’ is being organized in the twin cities, to promote healthy life style and communal activities such as cycling and running.
Islamabad’s weather and clean environment makes it an ideal city to hold and host outdoor sporting events, such as cycling/running. What’s more is that, Islamabad and its surroundings are also rich in a variety of terrains for the enthusiasts of such outdoor activities. Unfortunately, the potential remains untapped, and the residents of the twin cities have not been able to benefit from this natural resource
Launchpad Interactive, Aero Cycling, Islamabad Cycling Association and Islamabad Run With US – is a group of organizations and associations that are sensitive to this issue and have in the past, organized many local/regional and national level sporting/communal events.
We are now organizing the “Family Cycling and Running Gala, 2017” in the Sports Complex Islamabad, in partnership with the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the Metropolitan Corporation, Islamabad (MCI). The Gala is a part of CDA/MCI ‘Margalla Festival 2017’.
The Gala has been designed to cater to all age groups, with various events and activities that will attract children, youth and older men and women from all walks of life. The day will be divided in to two sessions (morning and afternoon/evening). With Cycling and Duathlon taking place in the morning session (0830 hrs), while running activities will be scheduled for the afternoon (1300 hrs). The event will close with a brief closing ceremony at 16:45 hrs. The categories for the activities for the day will include:
