Race day essentials for participants

The 2019 edition of Al Mouj Muscat Marathon will be a two-day festival in Oman’s vibrant capital, on 18th-19th January.

Check back here soon for more details about the event.

The start

For 2019, each race category’s start line will be situated in The Walk, at the heart of Al Mouj Muscat, Oman’s premier leisure destination and title sponsor of the Marathon. Two different areas within Al Mouj Muscat are set to host the finish lines; the Full Marathon, Marathon Relay and Half Marathon will be separately located from the conclusion of the 10K, Charity 5K and Kids’ Runs. Please refer to the route maps for clear illustration.

Race pack collection

All participants will receive a bib and technical shirt during race pack collection. Members of our team will be available on all days at this compulsory registration, to explain the route and answer any additional questions. To offer flexibility to competitors we’ll be hosting a number of dates for race pack collection, which will be announced in due course; please ensure that you bring your photo ID for verification.

International competitors who require late race pack collection will be given the opportunity to request this at a later date. Please note that it’s the responsibility of each runner to ensure receipt of a confirmation email from the marathon team, which acknowledges that the request has been received and can be accommodated.


The 2019 Al Mouj Muscat Marathon will serve up course routes offering stunning surroundings and fast, flat terrain that opens the door to personal bests and perhaps even world record performances. What’s more, the marathon, marathon relay, half marathon and 10K routes have all been certified by world-running organisation AIMS, aligning the 2019 event with International Association of Athletic Federation (IAAF) standards.

With Oman’s premier lifestyle development, Al Mouj Muscat, at its heart, the 2019 full and half marathon routes will feature stunning scenery as the courses head into the surrounding area. Runners will enjoy coastal views on the palm tree lined section to Seeb, a beach lined with traditional fishing boats, the refreshing greenery of the route through Al Mouj Golf and the majestic architecture of a new mosque adjacent to the course.
