The Himam Trail Run Race is back for its 2024 edition, offering runners the chance to push their limits and test their endurance on some of the most breathtaking trails in Oman and across the Middle East. Building on the success of last year’s race, organizers have revealed three distances that suit all levels of ability, including the classic and challenging Al Hajar Ultra 110 KM. This race kicks off on 05 December, starting in the picturesque town of Al Hamra. Runners will embark on a journey through the rugged beauty of Jabal Akhdar before descending into Birkat Al Mouz. Along the way, they will navigate rocky paths, climb steep inclines, and take in the stunning views of the surrounding landscape, ultimately gaining a total of 5700 meters of elevation.

Trail runners can also take on the technical and scenic 55 KM or 20 KM races, both starting on 06 December in Birkat Al Mouz. No matter which distance they choose, participants can expect a truly unforgettable experience as they navigate rocky paths, climb steep inclines, and take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The 20KM distance is a completely new trail designed to give runners scenic views of authentic Omani landscapes.

The three races have been included in the acclaimed UTMB Index, which means that runners finishing any of the races will have a recognized ranking in the UTMB Index, allowing them to see their global stance. Finishers will also enjoy getting points from the International Trail Running Association (ITRA), an added benefit that helps runners apply for ITRA qualifying races.
