Travel to Oman
Running is the perfect excuse to visit the Sultanate
Perched on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, the Sultanate of Oman’s stark beauty and vastly contrasting landscapes have enchanted growing numbers of tourists each year. With its magnificent desert, secret oases and breathtaking mountain ranges, Oman is an alluring destination. A tropical underwater paradise lies beneath the turquoise sea, caressing the white sandy beaches that adorn the country’s stunning 3165 km coastline. Alongside this natural wealth is Oman’s rich culture, which blends with modern infrastructure and historical features that span over 7,000 years.
Oman has a well-deserved reputation for the warmth of its welcome and the authenticity of its culture. Muscat, the Sultanate’s capital city, is home to over one million inhabitants and is within seven hours’ flight time of 50% of the world’s population. The city is well connected to destinations in Europe, the Gulf, Africa and Asia by direct flights with the Sultanate’s national carrier, Oman Air.
