Steve Watson, Race Organiser for the Abu Dhabi Striders " In setting up last years race course we were delighted to see so many runners from across the GCC make the trip to Abu Dhabi and set first up PB's. Our course was adjudged the most picturesque of all the 1/2 marathon course in the UAE and we appreciate the support of the Yas Island stakeholders in presenting our event.
Historically the Abu Dhabi Half Marathon remains the 1st major race race of the season, followed by the Dubai Creek Striders Half Marathon in December and the World class RAK Half Marathon in February.
