Oman Desert Marathon

During the first week of November every year, about 100 runners from 15 different countries congregate  to take part in a unique adventure in the breathtaking wilderness of the Oman Desert. The Oman Desert Marathon is a race covering 165 km requiring each runner to be completely self sufficient.

The runners will embody the essence and essential part of a real “desert experience”. This vast expanse of awe-inspiring beauty and fantasy will present   a physical, emotional and spiritual experience of a lifetime. The course will start from the Alwasil Oasis of Bidiyah and finish on the shore of the Arabian Sea.

Six stages and six different perspectives of one of the most beautiful deserts of the world: red, golden and white sands will make this journey unique and always different, in a scenario that doesn’t know monotony. The six stages of the race will take the runners through mile upon mile of astonishing shapes and sizes of sand dunes, palm groves, hamlets and villages. They will pass semi nomadic tribes who still follow the Silk Route through the Oman Desert, wildlife and stunning sunsets and finish the race with an explosion of emotion when they arrive at the shores of the Arabian Sea. There is a night stage when the  awe-struck runners will be inspired by the silence, solitude and mysticism of the desert, illuminated only by the twinkling of millions of stars.
