If your New Year’s resolution involves running a marathon, then you may want to clear your calendar for February 10th, when Saudi Sports for All Federation (SPA) and the Ministry of Sports will host the third edition of the Riyadh Marathon. 

Set to kick off from King Saud University, participants will pass through the Imam Abdulaziz bin Mohammed Royal Reserve. They will then run through the neighbourhoods of Malham and Salbukh, before entering the historic city of Diriyah. Afterwards they will circle back and cross the finish line where they started. 

From a 4-kilometre circuit to a 42.2-kilometre full marathon, the Riyadh Marathon features four race courses designed to suit all athletic levels. The race starts at 5 AM, with ticket prices ranging from SAR 39 to SAR 109 depending on your chosen race course. Registration is currently open at the Suffix Events website.
