The Sultanate’s main mountain range is the 10,000 foot Al Hajar, which runs from Musandam in the North to the extreme limit of the Arabian Peninsula, Ras Al Had.

Oman by UTMB® is a runner’s dream – an ultra trail along mountain top ridges, through villages, palm plantations, deep wadis and narrow gorges. Your journey will lead you off the beaten tourist tracks, allowing you to explore the Sultanate’s hidden gems that are located deep within its rugged, untouched landscapes.

The trail’s a treat for the senses; you’ll enjoy breathtaking views and historic plantations alongside the sights and smells offered by lush terraces teeming with pomegranates, figs, almonds, grapes, apples and roses.
