Run Emiratis Run! Dubai Marathon To Be Held At Expo City

It’s that time of year to tie your shoelace and prep for the run as Dubai Marathon is back with its 22nd edition in the Emirates. On February 12, the Dubai Marathon will take place at Expo City Dubai, according to the organising committee. International runners will participate in the renowned race. The Dubai Sports Council has given its support to its organisation.

Expo City Is The Final Venue For Dubai Marathon

Expo City Dubai will host the Dubai Marathon for the first time this year. According to the organisers’ claim, this would provide the race with an extraordinary new setup.

Expo City Dubai, according to the organising committee, was selected as the location of the Dubai Marathon since it embodies Dubai’s principles of harmonious cohabitation and tolerance as well as its objective of acting as a connection between cultures.

Expo City is equipped to serve as a marathon venue for this event.

While earlier iterations of the Dubai Marathon were held around Dubai, mainly in Jumeirah. But the change of venue from the earlier location to Expo City was brought into action with the expectations of better change.

The Dubai Expo City offers a variety of beautiful and famous locations for the event. A brand-new course for the 42.195-kilometre marathon, the 10 kilometres of road race, and the 4 kilometres of a fun run, as well as roomy areas for a car park and other operational tasks.

The Marathon is set to gather the world’s best athletes after a two-year gap brought on by the global epidemic. More details will shortly be released by the organising group.

Marathon Essentials To Keep In Mind

As the website is yet to announce the start and finish point of the event, there are certain pointers to go through.

Everyone participating in the event will be provided with a run number and the participants need to collect it from the ADIDAS outlet of Dubai Mall. The dates and timings for the collection of numbers can be found on the official website. Carry identity proof when you visit the outlet.
Every participant will be awarded a t-shirt, finishers medal and certificate. Water stations, medical facilities and toilets will be present at the venue for runners.

We hope to see you at Expo City soon!
