Asked to brave a 6:30am start and over 42km of course, more than 2,000 runners turned out to take on this year’s Dubai Marathon.
The 10km race was even more popular, with over 18,000 people having signed up and runners flocking to the start around 9am.
Taking in the Burj Al Arab and moving up and down Beach Road, the Dubai Marathon has become a favourite among tourists and residents alike.
And we were there to take in all the action and catch up with some of the runners taking part.
Did you take part in either the marathon or 10km this past Friday?
