On your marks, get set for 2020 Muscat Marathon


Registrations for the 2020 edition of Al Mouj Muscat Marathon opened on Wednesday, organisers announced at a press conference in the capital.

The next edition of the Sultanate’s two-day festival of running will take place on the weekend of January 17 and 18, 2020, and aims to grow the appeal to international runners and get more Omani youth active.



Under the slogan #RunWithUs, the national campaign comes in light of the rising levels of diabetes, obesity and hypertension in Oman.

Seven top athletes from a variety of sport disciplines have joined forces as inspirational ambassadors for the event to highlight this mission including Oman’s top goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi, sports car racing driver Ahmad Al Harthi, Olympic show jumper Sultan Al Touqi, sprinter Barakat Al Harthi, tennis player Fatma Al Nabhani, and sailor and Olympic hopeful Musab Al Hadi.



In addition to that, world record holder and British runner Paula Radcliffe will act as role model to add to the collaborative effort by the event organisers, Oman Sail, and supporters to encourage a larger segment of the youth to get active.
