Numerous activities will also take place at the park from 8am to 3pm, while Aspire Zone will have its doors open to those who wish to enjoy sports for an extended stay.

The Fun Run will also be back.

The Fun Run has been the hallmark of NSD since it first edition.

It features a 2.5-km course around Khalifa International Stadium and is a popular activity for families with children and mobility-challenged participants.

The run is open to all members of the community.

Registration for the race will be open from 6:30am to 7:30am, with the race starting at 8am in the area between Khalifa International Stadium and the Torch Hotel.

Aspire Academy will present four new activities under the supervision of Education and Student Affairs department, focusing on team building and collaboration skills.

The four games include: Crash Ball/Bubble Soccer, Foot Badminton, Human Baby Foot and Mega Boxes.

These games are scheduled in time slots between 8:30am and 2pm at Football Pitch 10.

NSD celebrations at Aspire Zone will also include female-only activities suitable for all ages.

Scheduled events include gymnastics, badminton, basketball and aerobics that will take place at Aspire Dome from 10:30am-1pm.

The Multi Sports Development team will also organise sporting challenges geared towards families.

Aspire Dome will host a variety of activities for families, including running, hammer throwing, plyometric challenges, and a 200-meter bike race.

The activities at the Dome will run from 10:30am until 3pm.

The starting point will be from Aspetar's west wing.

In addition to walking, the activity will include fun games and different exercises for stretching, balancing and conditioning.
