(MENAFN Press) Sharjah Ladies Club gears up to launch "Sharjah Ladies run" at the Sharjah University City. With over 250 participants, the activity aims to encourage women and enable them to participate in sporting activities. Ladies are supposed to run for 5 kilometres. The event, which will see ladies run a total of 5 kilometre, is being organised under the supervision of specialised sporting programme managers, in addition to a medical team and ambulance in case of any emergency.

Speaking on the occasion, Khawla Al Serkal, Director of Sharjah Ladies Club, said that the initiative is part of Sharjah Ladies Club's continuous eagerness to provide a sporting and health platform to women. It aims to deliver a message to community that sport is an interesting and useful activity and to ensure that women, who make up half of the society, will participate in all sporting activities. "We aim, also, by organising this sporting initiative, to raise awareness on the importance of healthy lifestyle and to enhance the value of sport in the hearts of women from a variety of age and social groups," she added.

Al Sarkal stressed the importance of organising such events due to the role of run in preventing diseases, particularly diabetes, as the UAE is ranked 11th worldwide in terms of diabetes prevalence. Sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity and unhealthy nutrition are the main causes of this disease.

Al Sarkal added that technical and organisational preparations have been completed for the event. She explained that the run track has been designed in the Sharjah University City and is expected to be to the highest sporting and technical levels and full of excitement and competitiveness among participants.

The participants will be provided with kit bags containing shirts, caps and other tools, all bearing the logo of the event.

It is worth mentioning that the Sharjah Women run activity will launch at 7:00 am and continue until 11:00 am. Warm up and stretch exercises will be provided to women upon request to prepare them to finish the 5 kilometre track. A spacious children's play area will be provided for children to take part entertaining activities in a fun-filled atmosphere.
