FloTrack will be LIVE streaming the 2017 Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 9:20pm ET. The marathon will look to threaten the current marathon world record as it features Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele who has confirmed his attempt at the world record. Bekele, the three-time Olympic gold medallist, won the Berlin Marathon in September and set the Ethiopian record of 2:03:03, which was just six seconds short of Dennis Kimetto’s world record of 2:02:57.
