About the Race

WHY RUN IT?

If you have your eyes set on racing the original UTMB, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to enter than through UTMB Oman. Competing in the 150 km race gives you enough running stones for guaranteed entry. Plus in the process, you get to run an incomparably beautiful course through the mountains to the summit of Jebel Shams, covering 29,000 feet of elevation.

“If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.”

- Anatole France

Of all that’s wonderful about traveling Oman, the only probably is that there’s really only one good way to do it – in a 4×4 SUV. You can save some money with an economy car or buses, but you’ll miss out on the freedom of driving to one amazing vista after another, especially if you head into the mountains for the race. But as long as you’ve got wheels, might as well use them! Wadi Shab should be top of your list, followed closely by the Wahiba Sands and the beaches near Sur.
