Dubai Marathon to be held at Expo City Dubai

The Dubai Marathon will be held at Expo City Dubai on February 12, the organizing committee announced.

The iconic race, which returns for its 22nd edition, will bring together runners from around the world. It is organized with the support of the Dubai Sports Council.

The Dubai Marathon is bringing together the world’s elite athletes after a break of two years due to the pandemic.

This will be the first time that the Dubai Marathon will be held at Expo City Dubai, which organisers say will provide an “exceptional new setting” for the marathon.

The organizing committee said Expo City Dubai was chosen as the venue of Dubai Marathon because it “represents Dubai’s vision of serving as a bridge between cultures and its values of peaceful coexistence and tolerance”.

Expo City Dubai, the site of Expo 2020 Dubai, has unique architectural marvels and open areas, with extensive facilities for the marathon’s operations.

The Dubai Marathon features three runs: the full 42.195 kilometres marathon open to runners over 18; the 10 kilometres Road Race open to runners over 15 years; and the 4 kilometres Fun Run open to all. ICA/Expat Media
