The third edition of Oman’s Himam Trail Run Race returns in December 2022 to take on Al Hajar mountains once more with hundreds of trail running enthusiasts and pros expected to line up at the start line. The 2022 edition will take place on 1-3 December 2022, and will feature routes designed to suit all endurance levels at distances of 55km and Al Hajar Range Challenge 100km that qualify those who complete them with points earned from the International Trail Running Association (ITRA), and a 25km for beginners who are looking to start a trail running career.
Aiming to celebrate sport, health and the environment in the Al Dakhiliyah Governorate of Oman, the 2021 edition of the Himam Trail Run Race attracted 421 runners from 36 countries, including 50 female athletes and 29 runners aged over 50 years of age. It brought together a dedicated team of 60 organisers and 270 volunteers to deliver a highly-successful event. This year’s event will aim to attract more female athletes, and runners of all ages from across Oman and around the world to test themselves against a unique challenge.
Organisers have officially open registration for the race. The Al Hajar Range Challenge 100km will start in Al Hamra one Thursday at the heart of traditional plantations, magnificent Omani irrigation canals and picturesque villages, taking runners in a journey of discovery. 100km runners will experience a route that once witnessed international runners coming to compete for the Oman by UTMB in 2019. The route then circles the foothills of Jabal Akhdar before heading to the gates of the old Fort in Birkat Al Mouz where a race village open for spectators awaits their arrival. The 25km and 55km races will begin at Birkat Al Mouz on Friday, with routes designed to give runners a variety of terrain and a taste of culture, ancient history and tradition.
