“Excellent Race. Must Participate if you are Runner. This route will give you the entire version of Muscat All about. I will recommend every Worldwide runners to participate and enjoy the stunning views of Muscat. ”
“If you love hills, this is your event. It's a challenging course but the views are very spectacular. Organisation was fantastic and the volunteers so helpful and enthusiastic, it's a pleasure to participate. And most importantly, it's for charity, so running and helping - what more can you ask for.
Great job, organisers and volunteers”
“If you need a real challenge to conquer some hills without being worried to wreck ur ankles at wild off-road tracks than this is a good run. Not easy but nice to reach the finish line at lovely Al Bustan Hotel Beach areal.
The countless volunteers of the organisers make sure it is a hassle free event. ”

“The event was organised very well, enough marshals at specific locations, finishers medal was very nice. The best part of the race is its terrain , its really hard and challenging which makes it unique 21K run. Will participate next year and also recommend to my other friends.”

“The support and encouragement from organisers and marshals are what get you through this race! This is a superb experience that will leave you aching for days but the sense of achievement overrides and has you signing up for next year! ”
“Lovely location for the start and finish and a wonderfully tough and challenging course with great views. But it's the friendly atmosphere that makes this event special with good support and endless breakfast and time and space to chill out and enjoy it in a beautiful setting afterwards. And of course, as it's run by volunteers, all the proceeds go to charity.”
“Always a pleasure to run- super hilly and super hard on the legs but the fabulous views along the whole route make every climb worth the struggle. Loved it. ”
“Spectacular start at the Al Bustan hotel, followed by a punishing climb, which is rewarded by fabulous views to the Gulf of Oman.
A Long descent follows with a run through the new and the old.
Then the return journey up the hills again. If you’ve saved your legs for the final descent you can let fly for the last three kilometres, with sub4 minutes/km the reward!
Great event. Thoroughly recommend it!”
“A great atmosphere, stunning scenery, challenging run”
“Not enough marshals, route poorly marked! Majority of leading runners got lost.
No race pack, just finisher t-shirt. Previously it was better, including the breakfast.
Course remains good and challenging but not worth the price. ”
“A must do event. Has all the flavours, mountains, views, seas, sky and offcourse, RUNNING, Walking, crawling .. etc .. Loved it...”

“Impartants given to MRR Members only... .. No photographers at finishing line for many non members..
The presenting medal at finish line was not impressive this time.. ”
