It was inaugurated 1979 to celebrate the visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Bahrain. The 1979 BRR Marathon had 15 participants and was won by Pete Rogers. In 1983, BRR vetran, Mustafa Fulad, became the first Bahraini to complete a full Marathon. If you’re not up to the full 42.2km, there will be a 5km side race, or just go along to enjoy the spectacle and cheer on the athletes. The main race starts at 6am and registration is open until March 3. Visit http://brr.bh/events/marathon/#
