Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon 2014
The Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon has been held in Dubai since the year 2000.
Under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, this is one of the first sporting events on the city’s calendar, occurring at the end of January and taking advantage of the cooler winter temperatures. The Dubai Marathon has become bigger and better each year, attracting many local and global sponsors.
The race is a major attraction and garners many people who come to watch and support the runners while many of the 10km and 3km participants run to raise money for local and international charities. The prize money for the winners go from USD 8,000 to USD 200,000!
