I would take part again
10.0 Fantastic Jill Charbonneau · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Completely off road, beautiful scenery and challenging. Can’t wait to do it again next year. I loved the “metal”. It was earthy and unique. A treasure. Like gorgeous Oman.”

8.0 Excellent event disappointed with the medal. Rajesh Dey · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“The overall event was excellent and the location is one of the best for trial running. this was my second run. But I was disappointed with the medals given, most of the people were really disappointed with medal beside that I was happy with everything.”

8.9 Fun event · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“This was such a nice, low-key race. The scenery was beautiful, the terrain challenging, and the fellow runners were congenial. I actually found the race medal to be perfect given the outdoorsy-ness of the event (and the global pressure to accumulate fewer "things" that will just end up in the oceans or in landfills as trash). My one gripe was having to go through so much water toward the end - especially given the route was nearly 1 mile (1.6km) longer than promised.”

9.1 Excellent Event with Outstanding management Kashif Ul Asad Mohammed · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“The overall event was excellent and the location is one of the best for trial running. this was my second run on the same route and i enjoy it everytime. the only thing which i was not content with was the Medal, as i expect to win a metal piece. Best of luck for future events.”

10.0 Great Race Nawal Al Rahbi · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Great event and Organizers, beautiful scenery and routs. Perfect month and weather for such a race. Thank you for the medal it’s very cute ”

9.8 Great scenery beautiful race Adeel Naim Khan · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“Love to do it again”

5.9 Underrated and badly managed event. Babar Rais · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“If an event is badly managed in this part of the world its no problem as they are still learning how to organize and manage. But the most annoying element is that they have an excellent location but they are not capitalizing on it. This was one of the best off road route I have experienced., excellent scenery, interestingly difficult but the organizers have failed to highlight these gems and market the event properly. They need - good marketing, nice metal medal, lively start and finish.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 18.02.2020
“Thanks very much for your feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed the route. It certainly illustrates our beautiful country in a fantastic way. The race is very well known within the running community in Oman and one of most popular events! SportZone's strategy is to provide the best running experience to the all of our participants and therefore our events are limited to a specific number of runners. We focus on the quality of the running experience rather than quantity. Also, we are still respecting the 40 day mourning period for our beloved Sultan, this means that all of our events during this period have been slightly less boisterous than usual. Sorry to hear that you did not like the new medals. We decided to try something a little different for this race and a lot of runners commented on how much they liked them. Please note that the price was the same as for the metal medals so this was not done as a cost saving. However, we are always happy to receive athlete feedback and we will revisit the medal style for the next event. We hope that you will join us for more Sportzone events and look forward to seeing you on the start line soon. ”

8.4 A challenging but good event! · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Great organisation from SportZone again - thanks so much! The route was well signposted (if a little long but I understand its hard to make it perfect in this location). Good atmosphere, the staff are fab. Great t-shirt, medal is a bit disappointing in comparison to previous medals. ”
