Ooredoo Atholhu Dhuvun has officially begun, joined by over 5000 runners from across the Maldives and beyond.

A first of its kind virtual run across all twenty atolls of the Maldives - it aims to promote togetherness through sport during a time where we are forced to be physically distant from loved ones

The company said that the virtual run features two categories where preselected runners will complete a 15km run across 20 Atolls and a 5km category that will be open for the public to participate from where ever they are.

5K Fun Run

Ooredoo said that participants can join the virtual run from their homes or a nearby running track from wherever they are and complete the run whenever they want throughout the weekend (28th & 29th August 2020).

  • Complete the 5K using any recommended running app (Strava, Garmin Connect, Runtastic, Nike Run Club, and Runkeeper) to track your run.
  • Submit a screenshot of your completed run route from your App to the Atholhu Dhuvun Portal to claim your medal.
