JBA: 130KM

130 KM Jebel Akhdar (JBA): 28/11/19

The first edition of the OMAN by UTMB® proved to be a big hit in 2018 and was labelled one of the most technical UTMB routes in trail running.

Runners now have the chance to go face to face with the original 130KM trail again as they take on the heights of the Green Mountain, Jebel Al Akhdar, run through ancient, deserted villages, traverse plateaus, navigate stunning ridges and pass through beautiful wadis, before finally descending into the traditional mountain village of Misfat Al Abriyyin and on to the finish.

With the new qualification criteria for UTMB in Chamonix, runners completing the 130KM or 170KM distances will bypass the lottery and have a guaranteed entry for UTMB 2020.
