Race History

Organised by Muscat Road Runners in 2012 with 135 competitors, Muscat Marathon has quickly grown to become one of the star events in Oman’s sporting calendar. In 2017, the event became known as the Al Mouj Muscat Marathon with Al Mouj Muscat, Oman’s premier lifestyle destination, and Oman Sail joining forces as sponsor and organiser. A record breaking 1300 runners from 76 nationalities set off from the race village on the full marathon, half marathon and 10kms courses with superb conditions attracting massive crowds and contributing to a stream of personal bests.
