NREC hosts Kuwait Cycling Organization’s Cycleague event at Souq Sharq

01 - November - 2016

National Real Estate Company (NREC), one of the leading real estate companies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), hosted the Cycleague event held by the Kuwait Cycling Organization at Souq Sharq Waterfront.

Launched in 2015, the competitive activity is a race comprising four stages where each stage takes place in one of Kuwait’s governorates in different months of the year. The kick-off stage was hosted at NREC’s Souq Sharq in October under the theme, ‘Health.’ The three remaining stages will be held in January, March and May, each under a different theme and governorate.

The route of the race is 5km long starting from Souq Sharq Waterfront to Kuwait Towers and back, with men contestants cycling 10 laps and women cycling 5 laps respectively. More than 140 participants from across the Gulf region took part in the race to win the title of stage one until the second stage taking place in January 2017.

NREC Group CEO, Mr. Samuel Sidiqi, said: “We thank the organizer for choosing our Souq Sharq Waterfront development to kick off the race. We at NREC are advocates of promoting a healthier and more balanced lifestyle, as well as supporting local initiatives that offer valuable contributions to our community.”

With a diverse offering for all tastes, Souq Sharq remains one of the most visited sites in Kuwait, and a great venue for outdoor events, all year round.

Souq Sharq houses three distinguished offerings: The Shopping Center, which is home to a wide selection of retail brand names, restaurants, cafés and entertainment centers; The Fish and Vegetable Market, where the blend of old and new stands as a testament to a historical record of quality, freshness and a vibrant economy; and finally the National Yacht Club and Marina, offering a gateway for fishing vessels as well as accommodating hundreds of private yacht docks.
