Dubai Sports Channel Confirmed as Host Broadcaster

Millions of viewers across the globe will be able to watch live when the 2024 Dubai Marathon gets underway on Sunday.

Organised under the auspices of the Dubai Sports Council and with Dubai Sports Channel confirmed as the official broadcaster of the event, TV stations and online platforms have been signing up to take live coverage of the first international marathon of the new year.

The 2024 Dubai Marathon will be watched live by viewers across all continents.  While MBC Shahid/SSC will also be covering the MENA region, African viewers will be able to access the live coverage on four different channels, including the Ethiopia Broadcast Corporation, Sports Life, Africa XP and Supersport

  In Asia Pacific, Eurosport will provide access for the Indian sub-continent; Huya will cater for the Chinese market, with ASTRO Malaysia and Fox Australia also providing live coverage of the race as it unfolds from 6am (UAE time). The USA broadcast will be by Fortius Media along with Sport Max in the Caribbean and their US-focussed networks.

In Europe, Sky Deutschland will follow the exploits of their athletes as they seek qualification for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

And for those unable to access a TV feed, the global broadcast will be backed up by the Dubai Marathon’s official YouTube channel, which will offer global access with no geo-blocking on https://youtube.com/live/mQo6ka541Hw?feature=share

H&A Media are the appointed broadcast coordinators and global media rights holders, with distribution support in selected markets by Sports Media Frontiers.

“It’s great to be back on our traditional fast, flat scenic course in an Olympic Year and have such an immense level of interest from linear and digital broadcasters alike,” said Event Director Peter Connerton. “We invest in the quality of the television production and partnering with Dubai Sports Channel to showcase the Emirates is a positive step.”

While a host of international elites will fight it out for the prestigious Dubai Marathon trophy, thousands of everyday runners will also line up in the 4km Fun Run, the 10km Road Race and the 42.195km Marathon itself.

Among them, over 1,200 runners representing Jumeirah Group will be targeting a record of their own. The runners, registered from throughout the company and running across all three race categories, will be aiming to become the largest corporate entry in the 23-year history of the Middle East’s oldest international marathon, which is being staged under the auspices of the Dubai Sports Council.

Since 2007, Jumeirah Group has always been one of the largest corporate teams on the starting line. And wearing their distinctive red shirts, their runners will be aiming to set the bar even higher on Sunday when the gun goes off for the start of the race close to the iconic Burj Al Arab.

“Jumeirah Group runners of all standards are committed to the Dubai Marathon and proud to support their own city’s marathon,” said Gordon Rech, Director of Colleague and Medical Services, Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts.

“It has always been our policy to encourage wellness and inclusivity, while investing in the health and fitness of the employees. It is something our staff appreciate, and they are always happy to turn out in large numbers for the Dubai Marathon. Hopefully, in 2024 we can set a new record for the number of corporate entries across the three races.”

A newly opened, purpose-built sports arena at Jumeirah Group’s staff accommodation Oasis Village in Dubai is a testament to the company’s commitment to the healthy lifestyle of its employees.

The arena is free to access for all employees with the opportunity to get involved in all types of team activities, such as basketball, football, badminton and volleyball, while other facilities are freely available including swimming pools, cricket pitches and tennis courts.

“The Oasis Village Sports Arena is a special addition and one the employees have embraced,” added Rech. “From our junior employees to our CEO Katerina Giannouka, we have people throughout the company who like to run and hopefully we will see more than 1,200 of them come together on Sunday.”

For those registered, run number collection takes place this week, while those yet to sign up can do so by Saturday (January 6) but must collect their run numbers before race day as no numbers will be distributed on Sunday.

Holders of a valid UAE residence visa and UAE driving licence who run can also have the chance to win an EXEED RX, courtesy of EXEED by Al Ghurair, the renowned premium vehicle brand represented by AG Auto in the UAE

The 2024 Dubai Marathon is supported by the Dubai Sports Council, adidas, Dubai Duty Free, EXEED by Al Ghurair, the Channel 4 Radio Network, ITP Media Group, Bisleri Water, Biofreeze, Dubai RTA, Dubai Police, Al Ameen Service, Dubai Municipality and SIRO One Za’abeel, the first fully integrated Fitness + Recovery hotel in Dubai.
