Dubai Marathon: Postponed but definitely not cancelled

2006-02-15

It might well be a question for a quiz question master with a keen interest in track and field athletics: Why will the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon 2006 begin six weeks late? The new date of February 17 instead of January 6 can be explained as follows: two days before the race, the death of Sheikh Maktoum bin Raschid al-Maktoum was announced. Official mourning for the ruling emir began straightaway and was due to last for 40 days. Most athletes as well as managers and journalists were already in Dubai or had received the news during their flight to the United Arab Emirates.
