Organizing Entities:

Abu Dhabi Sports Council and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) jointly organize the marathon, prompting the ITC’s traffic management team to coordinate with Abu Dhabi Police and the Abu Dhabi Sports Council for seamless traffic flow and safety measures.

Key roads like Corniche Road, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street, Al Bateen Street, Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street, and Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Street will be temporarily closed from 12 am to 2 pm to accommodate the international marathon.

Marathon Route and Landmarks:

The marathon route will encompass renowned landmarks, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Al Bateen Palace, Al Hosn Palace, and the World Trade Centre, culminating at the finish line near Baynunah Park at the ADNOC Complex.

The ITC urges the community to adhere to road closure instructions during the event and to avoid pedestrian movement on the closed roads for safety reasons. Alternative routes like Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street, Sultan bin Zayed First Street, and others are recommended.

Traffic Management Strategies:

To ensure unimpeded traffic flow, Shakhbout Bin Sultan Street and Hazza Bin Zayed the First Street will remain open, serving as essential connectors across the marathon track.
