After the success of their recent football tournaments, Oceanic Sports are taking the next step in their goal of bringing communities together through exciting sporting events.
The first ever ‘Kurta K’ is a 6k walk-run taking place on the 19th of March at Strathclyde Country Park in partnership with UK charity, the Well Foundation. Starting at 11am the event will cost £3 to enter but it is free for those under the age of 16.
All proceeds from entry will go towards the Well Foundation, a national registered charity that focuses on raising money to install hand pumps, deep bore wells, and establish health and sanitation programmes to provide safe as well as clean drinking water for all. The event is designed to be enjoyable for all abilities and ages – parents with young children, groups of friends and even solo walkers.
The name Kurta K promotes the Asian community to get active and healthy, put their kurtas on and enjoy a day out. The world will observe Mother’s Day on the 19 th of March and this is the perfect occasion for a nice family day out in the scenic Strathclyde Country Park.
A spokesperson from Oceanic Sports said, “With the tremendous success we’ve had so far we can’t wait to keep the momentum going with this next event.
“We’re expanding the range of events we host as this is an event that’s not about winning as much as its about people coming together to support a good cause and get some exercise. We look forward to hopefully seeing a huge turnout of people with their running shoes on, ready to go.”
