The Al-Mouj Muscat Marathon offers a combination that has proved increasingly attractive to international runners. They have seized the opportunity and flown into Muscat International Airport’s impressive new terminal on direct flights from Europe and beyond. On the ground, they will find themselves warmly welcomed into a running community embracing both native Omanis and expats.
Runners can expect an authentic Arabian experience in the Sultanate of Oman, with the country’s legendary hospitality and ideal weather. Oman was ranked the fourth safest country in the world by the World Economic Forum as recently as 2017, while many visitors agree with Lonely Planet and National Geographic that Muscat is a ‘must-see’ destination. It’s a friendly place.
Another open secret is the country’s magical climate in February that provides perfect running conditions with average temperatures ranging from 17–25°C.
The course for all races is fast, scenic, and largely coastal. It starts within the attractive Al Mouj waterfront community before heading out through palm-lined streets and passing iconic sites like the Sayyida Fatima bint Ali Mosque on one side and the crystal-clear sea on the other.
