“Entries are coming in fast, with the number of registered entries already significantly ahead of last year. Over 850 entries had already been received. With 6 weeks to go until the race we are delighted with the numbers. We have a limit of 1,000 runners, so I encourage anyone who is thinking of entering to do so now to be sure of a place,” Malcolm Murphy, chairman of the Dubai Creek Striders, said.

Registration for the race can be made through the club’s website (www.dubaicreekstriders.com), or by going to www.premiermarathons.com with Dhs150 being the entry fee.

The half marathon, sponsored by Johnson Arabia, is the club’s main event of the year, and the 9th edition of the race will start and finish at the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club while following a scenic, and cultural, route around, over and under the Dubai Creek.

The Dubai Creek Striders is a social running club that focuses on long distance races. Anyone is free to join and the club has over 300 active members – both female and male – of all ages, nationality and ability. The members organise training runs every Friday morning.
