The course has been changed to get the record, it's boring along the beach road with only two turns and no elevation.
That's what Dubai wants, another world record. Can't remember exactly but there's a serious amount of $$$$ for the record.
Those of us who work weekends miss out on lots of races. Generally need to take annual leave as all the races are at weekends.
I'll be doing it. The new couse is flat but designed to get Dubai the marathon world record.
But there are worse places to run than the beach road. Will be my first marathon in five years so hoping for sub 4.
Miles/kilometres are ticking off nicely. 5k with my 8 year old yesterday and an off road 8k in the desert after work today. Really enjoying my running at the minute.
Now sitting outside in shorts having a beer with the barbie on, enjoy the UK weather guys!! (Sorry couldn't help myself!)
