We'd wager a lot of you reading this made a New Year's Resolution to get a little bit fitter in some form or another...

Assuming you haven't given up on that holistic pursuit already, then this year's Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon provides the perfect opportunity for you to make good on those promises to yourself, early doors in 2018. 

Apart from the obvious health benefits, one of the best thing about marathons is the collective camaraderie, and this year's race on January 26 carries an extra bit of glamour, with a number of influencers running alongside each other in the selection of 4K, 10k and (*deep breath*) 42K stretches. 

Locally-based social media stars Naomi D'Souza, Omar Al Busaidy, Mariam Yeya, Enjykiwan and Dan Hourani have all outlined their individual #reasontorun here, take a look and, if you fancy taking part, post yours too!
