The 2014 Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon – the unofficial seventh Major with the largest first prize in marathoning at $200,000 – is this Friday (Thursday night in US – 10 pm ET Thursday).

The full elite fields for the races are now out. You can see them below.

The men’s race features six sub-2:07 performers whereas the women’s race has three sub-2:22 performers and 7 sub 2:24 performers.

Of course, one should pay close attention to the people making their debuts in Dubai, as the last two years debut marathoners have won in Dubai. In 2012, Ayale Abshero won in 2:04:23, and in 2013, Lelisa Desisa won in 2:04:45.

This year, the big names making their debuts on the men’s side include Ethiopian half marathon record holder Atsedu Tsegay (58:47 PR), who ran a stellar 59:10 half on December 15th, and 13:00/26:52 man Abera Kuma.

For more info on this year’s, see the Dubai marathon media guide.
