Ooredoo Maldives Fun Run 2022.

Ooredoo Maldives’ annual Fun Run weekend starts Friday, with exciting festivities including the first ever drone race to be held in the Maldives, followed by the 5K run, and a star-studded music show during the evening

The weekend’s program is as follows:

Ooredoo Drone Race (08:00 am-11:00 am)

Ooredoo Drone Race 2023 – the first ever drone race to be held in the Maldives - will kick off Ooredoo Fun Run Day, at 08:00 am Friday, at Hulhumale' Central Park.

The race will see pilots from two dynamic categories: Sky Elite (FPV Drone) pilots and Sky Walker (DJI Non-FPV Drones), where pilots who advanced from the qualifying round will navigate their drones through a challenging course.

The race will be a timed race where participants will compete to complete the race in the shortest possible time.

Competitors participating in the Sky Walker and Sky Elite categories of Ooredoo Drone Race 2023 will be honored with exclusive prizes, recognizing the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd positions in this exciting drone challenge.

Ooredoo Fun Run (03:30 pm-06:00 pm)

Ooredoo Fun Run – described by Ooredoo as the “biggest and happiest” run in the Maldives - is a fun-filled 5K run designed to be enjoyed by families and friends of all ages.

As an untimed and fun-filled 5K, the event welcomes both new and experienced runners to join in the excitement.

 Each kilometer covered will be celebrated with a unique fun station with colors, water and fun obstacles.

As the run is not a timed event, participants can choose to walk, jog, run or dance to the finish line, where their efforts will be celebrated in style with a foam party, finisher medals and a music show.

Ooredoo Music Festival (08:00 pm)

Following the Fun Run, Ooredoo Maldives will be hosting a fun music show open for public featuring fan-favorites from the Maldivian music industry including:

  • Mira, Shambe & Inma
  • Detune Band
  • DJ Dyd
  • Habeys Boduberu
  • Zakitte
  • Traphic Jam

Additional information about the events is available on Ooredoo’s social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Ooredoo Maldives has invited everyone to join the festivities, promising “an unforgettable experience”.
