Course records could well be under threat when one of the best elite fields ever seen at the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon – including three-time Olympic champion Kenenisa Bekele – leads more than 25,000 runners in the biggest mass participation event in the Middle East on Friday (January 23).
After being surprisingly beaten to the finish tape 12 months ago, Ethiopia’s Meselech Melkamu will be going all out to go one better and win her first Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon women’s title when the world’s richest marathon takes to the streets of the emirate on Friday (January 23).
With a week to go until Olympic legend Kenenisa Bekele makes his debut at the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon, the Ethiopian superstar is leaving nothing to chance as he prepares for the start on January 23.
