Official 2013 Dubai Marathon Discussion Thread - Race is tonight at 10pm - Live and Free!!
I just read that Abshero has scratched due to injury. Tsegay vs Mosop should be very intruiging
We have a nice preview up.
It also includes all of the entrants. Mosop is out.
But this is going to be a great race. Some BIG BIG debuts particularly that of Lelisa Desisa. Will he be marathons next star?
Plus Martin Lel.
The best part? You can watch it for free tonight at 10 pm.

8yeers since Paula ran sub 2h20.
Will her 2:17:18 record fall down?
So how far is the race this year?
Paula no run in over year. Why she no run? Its only excuses from her. She is 2:22 Marathoner from Berlin. Not as good as Keitany. Time for her to retire.
Yes..Mosop out!!halfway for men at 62'15
Halfway pace for women 1st group is 69'30..
From ethiopian friends Lelisa Desisa is said in really good shape!!
It should be the race of debutants!!
My info came from a good but not official source who has never led me astray on matters such as this.
His idea of what good BBQ ribs taste like is suspect though!!
Both Mosop and Lel will not start- correct?
I think you also reported Lel out earlier and someone quoted Titter posts with the same info.
Race is on now
And there off. I'm not hearing any sound. What about you guys?
No sound here either... Happy to have video, at least.
Where are you seeing a video?
It looks like it's recently rained or perhaps is still raining on the course, and there is a mist in the air. It looks humid. One of the leaders behind the pacers has some interesting Snoop Lion-like dreads...
It's Sisay Jisa with the dreads.
Here is the sound, finally. In English, no less. Nice.
Got some sound!
