Government departments, private organisations and different community groups participated in the Run, part of ATDD’s strategy to organise activities and events of all kinds in order to diversify Ajman’s tourism offerings.
Saleh Al Geziry said, “The Ajman Run has become an important event on ATDD’s calendar after its great success in generating public interest and participation in the last two years. This reflects Ajman’s ability to host and organise various sporting, leisure and cultural activities and events as a result of its developed infrastructure and facilities and experienced organisers.
“The diverse range of events and activities organised in Ajman boosts the tourism and leisure sectors and strengthens Ajman’s status as a destination for domestic and international tourists. We will continue to offer such popular events to sustain tourism in Ajman throughout the year,” added Al Geziry, who thanked the organisers, supporters and sponsors for contributing to the success of this year’s Run.
