Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon

Dubai Marathon Results

Dubai Marathon (official name Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon) is an IAAF Gold Label road race held in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The race is held in January each year, the first being run in the year 2000. Dubai has now firmly established itself as a venue for fast race times which means the city is now ranked up among the world’s premier events. In the men’s competition, Dubai now has the fourth fastest course record/time in marathon history behind Boston, Berlin and Frankfurt.

The 2012 edition proved to be one of the fastest finishing fields at that point: a record of four athletes ran under two hours and five minutes. The 2013 Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon is expected to see a record 20,000 runners competing over the three events on January 25, 2013.
