BRAND NEW TO 2019 – ENTRIES OPEN
50 KM Al Hamra (AHM): 29/11/19
2019 Oman by UTMB brings you a fresh challenge, the 50km race! Perfect for runners who are newer to the sport, this tough but fair trail run allows competitors to experience all the thrills of being part of the epic event over a shorter distance.
Starting in Al Hamra, 50km competitors will have to climb to a height of more than 2,300m, with over 2,000m of the mighty ascent featuring in the first half of the race. Reaching the trail’s highest point just beyond Qiyut, a euphoric run along the top of the plateau will reach the checkpoint at the top of the W8 Trail. This is where the mountainous descent begins, passing by the ancient town of Misfat Al Abriyeen, through lush plantations, agricultural terraces and stunning wadis, towards the finish line in Al Hamra.
