Act fast! Registration for the upcoming Dubai Marathon on Sunday is still open.

Late registrations should be completed through the marathon’s online platform and will be accepted until Saturday. The registration fee starts at $50, inclusive of an official race T-shirt, a finisher’s medal, and a downloadable certificate.

Participants who have already purchased tickets can pick up their race kits starting from Wednesday at the adidas store situated in The Dubai Mall.

This marathon, marking its 23rd edition and one of the most prominent events in the region, will both start and finish on Umm Suqeim Road. Despite its appeal to professional athletes and champions worldwide, the marathon encourages participation from individuals of all skill levels.

The event features a 4km fun run starting at 10 am, a 10km road race starting at 8:15 am, and an opportunity for amateur runners to take part in the full marathon, commencing at 7 am.

The marathon route traverses Jumeirah Beach Road, passing by prominent landmarks like Burj Al Arab and Madinat Jumeirah. Along the route, there will be water stations, restrooms, and medical teams available. Additionally, participants in the 10km race and marathon can utilize baggage facilities near the starting area.

To ensure a smooth event, organizers advise against parking along Jumeirah Beach Road or near the marathon route. They recommend using parking facilities at Mall of the Emirates, conveniently close to the starting lines. Furthermore, spaces near Al Wasl Road junctions are suggested. For those arriving by taxi, it’s recommended to pre-book and arrive at least 90 minutes before the marathon begins to avoid any delays.

Being the first international marathon of the year, the event attracts numerous professional competitors. Renowned athletes like Ethiopia’s Haven Hailu Desse, winner of the Rotterdam and Osaka marathons, and Kenya’s Betty Chepkwony, recent victor in Rome, are among the participants. Returning champion Ethiopia’s Dera Dida, winner of last year’s women’s race, will be defending her title.

The winners of both the men’s and women’s races will receive a prize of $80,000 each.
