Youth and Beginner Races


Youth and Beginner Races: 30/11/19

New for 2019, Oman by UTMB® is excited to present three short distance races, which have been designed to enable youth runners and adults the chance to embark on a fun introduction to trail running in Oman’s magnificent Al Hajar mountain region.

This is the perfect way to get together with friends and explore the Sultanate’s hidden treasures. Starting and finishing in Al Hamra, runners will take in the breathtaking views of the Al Hajar Mountains as they embark on a trail through a region featuring lush plantations, agricultural terraces and stunning wadis, alongside traditional falaj systems. The distances on offer are 2km, 5km and 10km, with an elevation gain that ranges from 8+ to 295+ of climbing.
