Residents race to register for Abu Dhabi marathon


The third edition of the ADNOC Abu Dhabi Marathon will take place on November 26.

According to the Abu Dhabi Media Office's recent announcement on Twitter, registration for the race has opened as spaces are strictly limited due to the capital's COVID-19 restrictions. 

All participants must be fully vaccinated in order to take part in the sporting event. 

Meanwhile, racers can sign up for the 2.5km, 5km, and 10km marathon or marathon relay. 

The event was cancelled a year ago due to the pandemic. People who signed up for the marathon last year will have their registration automatically transferred to this year at no additional cost.
