Al Mouj Muscat Marathon to be two-day affair in 2018
Muscat- The 2018 Al Mouj Muscat Marathon will be a two-day affair with the organisers - Muscat Road Runners, Al Mouj Muscat and Oman Sail – hoping to build on the success of last year's event by increasing the number of participants.
In a bid to increase the participating numbers, the organisers announced on Monday that the 2018 edition will be held on January 18-19 with the addition of few more races to the main marathon.
Last year, the marathon had 1,290 participants, including 246 Omanis. The registration for the seventh edition of the race also opened on Monday along with the unveiling of a new logo.
On January 18, a Kids Run that will feature three distances for different age-groups will be held over 1km, 2.5km and 4km.
The next day will feature the full marathon, half marathon and 10km race along with two new categories – 5km charity fun run and a marathon relay.
The marathon relay, which aims to attract corporate teams, is open to groups of four to six runners for the full 42km course.
