Under the patronage and participation of Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, head of the Department of Tourism Development in Ajman, the UAE Triathlon Association is going to organize the UAE Duathlon Family Virtual Race on Friday, May 15th.
The patronage and participation of His Highness in the event is an affirmation of the importance of this race, and a belief in the goals of the noble race in encouraging families to raise young adults in an environment that adopts sport as a lifestyle, which is a supportive step to raise children to love sports. Thus, this will be reflected in the development of their levels to be on an appointment with the birth of new heroes in the game, able to raise the flag of the UAE in various international coronation platforms. Participation is also major support to the sports movement in general and the complex sports that the UAE Triathlon Society cares about (Triathlon - Duathlon - and Aquathlon).
Sheikh Abdulaziz Al Nuaimi expressed his great admiration for the initiatives launched by the UAE Triathlon Association. He said: "During the last period, especially during the cessation of sports activity, I followed the activities of the association as well as the remote races that were conducted by the association, and I have noticed the extent of the great response of athletes and different groups of society to participate in the races that were held, whether for adults or children or for people of determination. This means that the wheel of development and giving continues to challenge in various sectors, including the sports sector, and there is a great connection between the association and the athletes and families who were keen to participate distinctively. I invite all families whose circumstances allow them to participate in these unprecedented community initiatives".
The President and members of the UAE Triathlon Association thanked and appreciated Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Humaid Al Nuaimi for his highness' gracious patronage and participation in this event. The Association officials expressed their happiness with the generous care provided by His Highness and stressed that his Highness is an example for young athletes. The participation of His Highness carries a message to the Emirate, Arab, and international community that carries with it the interest and support of the leadership of the state in sport. It also confirms that our leaders encourage every sport and community initiative that benefits everyone.
The Duathlon is among the complex competitions that consist of two sports, running and bicycling, where the race begins with running, then bicycling, and ends with running. The UAE Virtual Family Championship is designated for the teams, so that each family can form a team of 2 or 3 members of the first degree relatives, such as if the team consists of "father and son" or "father and son and daughter" or "mother and son" or "mother and daughter" or "a child with his uncle,” provided that in each team there is a child no more than 14 years old.
