A runner takes part in the London Marathon in Dubai Humidity A good cause
If you can’t make it, do it yourself!
A runner from Dubai took on the London Marathon pretty much from here in Dubai. The London Marathon took place this weekend and when? RAF Red Arrows Sqn Ldr Chris Newcombe couldn’t be in London for the race, he decided to tackle the Dubai heat and do it here instead.
This is a huge challenge – at night it is 70% humidity at 32 degrees. Let’s hope Storm doesn’t follow Shaheen further north. We will provide updates.

Anyone who has tried running during the Dubai summer will tell you it’s not easy!
Brilliant attempt. After doing a 5km in Dubai and almost dying of heat exhaustion, that’s what. Well done.
