The Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon has for the past 16 years been a staple of the UAE sporting calendar.
The whopping $250,000 prize fund for the winners of the male and female categories means that many of the world’ s top runners participate each year, while it is also a great event for first-timers given how flat it is.
As always, the start and finish lines for both 10km and 42.5km races are located just opposite Madinat Jumeirah, on the Umm Suqeim Road in the shadow of the iconic Burj Al-Arab.
There is also a 4km fun run for which participants will begin their effort on Al Wasl Road, adjacent to the Al Jalila Foundation.
