Route

In 2018, the race started at Oman’s premier lifestyle destination, Al Mouj and headed north along the coastline, offering runners a flat, scenic route which reached Al Seeb, a coastal fishing city that’s located several kilometres northwest of Muscat. With January temperatures averaging 25C, the course was further enhanced by a gentle sea breeze, offering perfect running conditions and the potential to be one of the fastest marathon routes in the Middle East. The 2019 Al Mouj Muscat Marathon route is still being finalised; check back here soon
