The world's fastest marathon runner Haile Gebrselassie will earn a 1 million US-dollar bonus if he betters his mark in Dubai in mid-January.

The 35-year-old Ethiopian has signed to run in Dubai for the second time after becoming the first man to run under two hours four minutes when he clocked 2:03:59 in Berlin last weekend.
