The International Half Marathon Competition in general is held every two years, organized by the International Association of Athletics Federations for the national teams. A country is chosen to organize this race based on the running course, location, and atmosphere.
Al-Khobar International Half-Marathon Race will be held annually under the supervision and recognition of the International Association of Athletics Federations, which will support and further the sport of running and will raise the ceiling of ambition of the people of Saudi Arabia to organize such an international event. We aspire to continue holding the Al-Khobar International Half Marathon annually in Al-Khobar Governorate in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to be a sporting, cultural, touristic event with social responsibility in the region and also as a preparation to participate in international forums and achieve the necessary qualifying times.
