DUBAI, UAE

Dubai, UAE is the location of the Asia Intercontinental Marathon ™ and the fourth marathon during the 2018 World Marathon Challenge ®.

The fourth marathon of the 2018 World Marathon Challenge takes place in Dubai, the most populous city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The City is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that makes up the UAE.

The City is also famed for its sky-scrapers and high-rise buildings and in particular the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
