Dubai, UAE January 12, 2025 Registration Open

The Dubai Marathon is an annual marathon held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Inaugurated in 1998, the Dubai marathon is a Gold Label Road Race by World Athletics.

The event is founded by Ahmad Al Kamali and is organized by Pace Events FZ LLC (a team from the UK). Samsung was the official title sponsor from 2001 till 2004 but starting in 2005, Standard Chartered became the title sponsor for the Dubai Marathon.

The 2021 edition of the Dubai Marathon was canceled due to the pandemic while the 2022 edition of the race was postponed to 2023 due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup hosted by Qatar due to an expected shortage of accommodation for marathoners if the race were to be held at the same time as the tournament.
