The start and finish for the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon 2013 will be in Downtown Dubai just past the entrance of the Burj Khalifa. The starts for the Marathon, 10km Road Race and 3km Fun Run will be from the same start gantry location just up from the Burj Khalifa outside the Pavilion. The finish area for the Marathon, 10km Road Race and 3km Fun Run will be through the same finish gantry location on the opposite side of the road from the start gantry.
Marathon – 7:00 am.
10km Road Race – 7:15 am.
3 km Fun Run – 10:30 am.
All participants are advised NOT to attempt to park in the Downtown Dubai area. There will be extensive road closures in place in Downtown Dubai and surrounding areas. If you do drive to the immediate Downtown Dubai area you do so at your own risk as this will create extensive traffic congestion and delays in getting to the start. Select an area that is familiar to you and give yourself plenty of time to walk the remaining distance to the back of the start heading up from the Burj Khalifa and Armani Hotel entrance.
There will be a taxi drop off and collection point at the Dubai Mall. If possible book your taxi in advance to avoid delays in getting to the start. Extra taxis will be available throughout the morning and afternoon.
Please come early to avoid any rush or delays.
