Dubai Marathon 2019
The Dubai Marathon (official name Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon) is an annual marathon running race held in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
The race is to be held on the 25th of January this year, the first was run on 14 January 2000. The 2008 race would become the world’s richest long distance running event in history, with one million dollars offered for a world record and $250,000 for first place for both the men and women.
The 2008 race was won by Haile Gebrselassie in a time of 2:04:53, making it the second fastest marathon ever at that time, but not fast enough to claim a world record and the million dollar prize.
The Marathon Route will start on the Umm Suqeim Road at the Madinat Jumeirah. The course is mainly along the sea front. The finish line before the Dubai Police Academy and is a great route for runners and Photographers.
We look forward to seeing the event unfold and see all the photographs and videos taken at this event.
Good Luck from the Bibsnapper team this weekend!
