RunInDubai is the World’s first and only luxury running holiday. Combine an opportunity to run in the World’s most lavish country whilst taking part in the World’s Richest Marathon. After experiencing running tours and holidays across the world, Chris Whitehead, RunInDubai’s founder felt the need to develop and build a running holiday of luxury and support like no other running package has provided before. From the time your aircraft touches down until you cross the finish line of the Standard Chartered, IAAF Gold Label Marathon you will feel like the event was organized purely just for you. RunInDubai will take you on training runs on the 8th Wonder of the World, The Palm Jumeirah and at the base of the World’s Tallest Tower, The Burj Khalifa. Swim in the Arabian Gulf and even go out on a Safari in the breathtaking desert to run or sand ski next to the camels.
RunInDubai’s British founder has run in many of the World’s Major Marathons and understands exactly what runner’s need. This luxury holiday is completely stress-free and you will be guided continuously through the 5 days that you are with us. Inside knowledge, support, experience and the friendliest staff will be continuously on hand for the full duration of your stay.
2012 brought record breaking numbers to the World’s second fastest Marathon and Ethiopian Ayele Abshero rewrote the record books with the fastest winning debut in history at 2:04:23. RunInDubai supported many runners at the same event this year with all our runners completing and taking PB’s home with them.
As RunInDubai enters its 3rd season we have added to the itinerary, The Standard Chartered 10K race on the same day to cater for every runner’s ability. You will have plenty of time to ask any questions related to the race when your guide takes you on the unbelievable Pre Race Runs, Tours, Bib collection and also at the last minute as we go to the start together. Finally as you complete the January 2013 Standard Chartered Dubai marathon you will greeted and taken back to your hotel to prepare for the Gala Dinner at one of Dubai’s most luxurious hotels.
