Dubai Midnight Marathon 2012

Since the announcement of the Dubai Midnight Marathon by Dubai Sports Council, excitement is building up for the event! Marathon addicts and running enthusiasts are overwhelmed by the feeling that a blanket of sparkling stars will accompany them during the race. You may find it creepy, considering running at night is definitely not the same as a daytime marathon. However, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) have specially held this exceptional marathon to promote Dubai as a safe tourist destination and an excellent place for long term living.
The Dubai Midnight Marathon (DMM) night race launch will take place at the Emmar Boulevard and Burj Khalifa Park on December 12, 2012. It also plans to make a world record for the largest eco-board featuring the largest number of logos. The actual running race will kick off on the December 13 night at 11:00 pm with a 3.2 km fun run. Other activities and events for families and kids start at 6:00 pm.

Given that, this year is the inaugural edition, a solitary fun run race will be held. A full-length marathon attracting world-renowned professional marathoners will take place from next year.
