The marathon will be staged under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, and under the aegis of the Dubai Sports Council.
The Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon has predicted that more than 14,000 runners will take to the streets of Dubai and compete in the marathon, the 10km race and the 3km Fun Run.
Organisers have already announced that the 42.195km run will be held on the 27th January 2012 and will start next to The Pavilion in Downtown Dubai, right by the world’s tallest building the Burj Khalifa before heading along the spectacular, 3.5 km Emaar Boulevard and turning left onto Doha Street alongside The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination.
Issa Abedi ICM Capitals company director, said: “For us at ICM Capital it is important that we partake in charity fundraising initiatives. This event is a great way to help charities which the Dubai Marathon is supporting.”
Everyone at ICM Capital is delighted to be part of this event and are looking forward to attending many more in the future. This will prove to be a successful and positive start to 2012 for ICM Capital and everyone involved.
