Yas Marina Circuit announced as Official Training Ground for the GHQ Armed Forces

Yas Marina Circuit today announced an exciting new partnership with GHQ Armed Forces that will see the circuit become the official​ ​training ground for the UAE Army’s cycling fitness initiatives.


The strategic tie-up further strengthens both parties’ commitment to health and fitness within the emirate and will see 200 camouflage branded bikes donated to Yas Marina Circuit by GHQ Armed Forces to be used for training by army personnel. The army’s training programme will be held during the circuit’s hugely popular weekly training nights, TrainYAS and GoYAS by Daman’s Activelife.

The alliance between these two key Abu Dhabi stakeholders recognises the huge importance and benefits of healthy living. Yas Marina Circuit’s weekly community fitness programmes, GoYAS and TrainYAS aimed at motivating people to live active healthy lifestyles, have proved hugely popular and this year has attracted a weekly average attendance of 4,500 people that run, walk or cycle the iconic, 5.5km F1 circuit.

​ ​The launch of the program will be held at TrainYAS on 19 May 2015. In a thrilling kick-start to the proceedings, spectators will be treated to a marching band and paratroopers from the Armed Forces parachuting into the circuit.
