We have teamed up with inspirational and influential role models to help explain the importance of living an active lifestyle. Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits that improve your quality of life.

Setting yourself the target of completing a distance at the 2020 Al Mouj Muscat Marathon is exactly the sort of goal that will motivate you to lead a healthy and active lifestyle, so why not #RunWithUs in January?

Paula Radcliffe MBE

Marathon world record holder

“I had such an amazing time last year; visiting the beautiful country and meeting some amazing people. I’m really looking forward to coming back in January and working with the other event Ambassadors to get more people experiencing running in Oman”

Ali Al Habsi

Oman’s top football goalkeeper

“Al Mouj Muscat Marathon is the perfect opportunity to engage the youth on the importance of being active. The annual event provides a fun platform for people to challenge themselves and work towards a fitness goal. My children took part in the kids run last year and really enjoyed the experience. I look forward to running in the event next year”

Fatma Al Nabhani

Oman’s most successful female tennis star

“It is an honour to be working with Al Mouj Muscat Marathon on a campaign that brings the whole nation together for a healthier future. The risk of not being physically active is too high. I would love to see more women participating in the event, because nothing is beyond our reach. I have never done anything like this before, but I love to challenge myself and hope that many people will join me at the event”

Sultan Al Touqi

Oman’s Olympic show-jumping silver medallist

“Sport is developing in many and varied ways across country, and I have been privileged to represent the Sultanate at many international show jumping events. I am really happy to be here to support the Al Mouj Muscat Marathon 2020 and its great mission in promoting health and fitness. I hope that with my fellow sportsmen and women can persuade the youth of Oman to get involved and get running”

Ahmad Al Harthi

Oman’s top car racer

“My motor racing career started when I was seven when I first visited a local kart track in Oman with my older brother – a factor that made me understand that inspiration at an early age is very important and can help take people a long way through their life. I am proud to be here today to play my part in hopefully inspiring young people to take part in Al Mouj Muscat Marathon 2020 – who knows where it could take you”

Barakat Al Harthi

Oman’s top sprinter

“I am very pleased to be here as an ambassador for Al Mouj Muscat Marathon 2020, Oman’s largest athletic festival. I have made a career out of running and I hope I can inspire the young people of Oman to come forward and join me and the other ambassadors in January next year”

Musab Al Hadi

Olympic sailing hopeful

“As a professional yachtsman, I have been part of the Oman Sail project since I started sailing at the age of 19. Like Al Mouj Muscat Marathon it aims to promote sport and its many benefits across the Sultanate and get people active and involved. I am proud and happy to be here to add my voice to those of my fellow ambassadors to get young people taking part in next year’s event. It is a simple message – come and run with us”
