Supporting Runners

Due to the fact that many of the checkpoints are quite difficult to access and all require a 4×4, we will not be running a supporter’s shuttle service around all the checkpoints. We do however plan to run a shuttle from the Golden Tulip and Nizwa Apartments to Alila Hotel and Aid Station where personal assistance is allowed. Details will be published in the Runners’ Guide.

So if you wish to follow your runner via multiple checkpoints you will need your own 4×4. All the checkpoints up until Sharaf Al Alamayn plus Misfat Al Abriyyin are accessible by 4×4 from Birkat Al Mouz or Al Hamra. However we advise supporters not to try and drive to checkpoint 2 at Masirat Al Rawajih or to the aid station at Balat Sayt. We will publish further advice about this in our Runners Guide.

If you have family, friends or your spouse joining you they are welcome to join you at the After Party and on the shuttles should you have booked the Runners Package.  Otherwise it is an additional 20 OMR for shuttles and 15 OMR for the After Party.
