Uber At The Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon

This week starts the countdown to one of the biggest and most beloved Dubai sporting events, the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon. From professional athletes, to first-time racers, and everyone in-between, more than 25,000 runners will test their limits as they make their way through the streets of Dubai next Friday.

In preparation for the marathon, there will be many road closures, and parking will be limited. We’ve partnered up with our friends and Standard Charter, to make getting to and from the race as easy as possible. There will be dedicated pick-up and drop-off areas for Uber users to make it easy to find your ride.

New Uber users can also avail of a free first ride to pick up their race packs using promo code ‘SCRP16’, or ‘SCDM16’ for a free first ride to or from the marathon (up to AED100).

  1. Download the Uber app for iOS or Android
  2. Enter promo code ‘SCDM16’ and get AED100 off your first Uber ride to or from the marathon

Charity is an important part of the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon. Seeing is Believing, a regional organization aimed at tackling avoidable blindness, is the official charity of the marathon. Enter promo code ‘SIBDXB16‘ and we will donate half our revenue from your trip to and/or from the marathon to Seeing is Believing.
