Intercontinental Hotel Doha
Saturday Morning Open Water Swim & Run, Aquathlon

Google maps location


We are lucky to be supported by the Intercontintal Doha where each month we are able to use their beach and grounds for swim training and several of our monthly Aquathons. Following each Saturday morning of training, the hotel puts on a private buffet breakfast for members at a special price of QAR85. Additionally, at each weekend event, we usually are given a competitive rate to stay over, enjoy the hotel and facilities on the Friday and Saturday morning, making getting to the start line a bit easier...unless you stayed late at the Belgian Cafe!

Location of Hotel
Members can park in the regular carpark, or use the valet, and then make their way through the main doors and downstairs to the health club. Normally each event requires a simple sign up so your name is at the door.
