FAQs: Trail Running in Oman

What should I know about Trail Running Oman?

Oman is the Gulf’s hidden gem. Complete with varied landscapes and perfect wintertime temperatures, the country is ideal for trail running during this time of year.

Most trips are based out of Muscat and give you easy access to a variety of different spots. The mountains, coast and desert are all particularly popular destinations.

Once you’ve gotten in your kilometers for the day, head out and explore other parts of the country too. Hiking and caving in the mountains are both popular activities. Also, be sure to also check out some of the country’s pristine beaches and either to take in the sun or try out some surfing. Desert safaris on camel-back are also quite popular.

Why should I choose Oman for my Trail Running adventure?

Stunning scenery

Enjoy stunning views from the coastal mountains out over the sea or down into the desert. Setting suns turn the whole landscape an array of different colours and is really quite a sight to see. Heading out for a trail running expedition here ensures that you’ll get to see a lovely sample of this scenic country.

Varied terrains

The great part about trail running is that it can be done just about anywhere. While the mountains south of Muscat are the most popular destination due to great views and epic downhills, heading out along the coast yields brilliants seaside views and running through the desert at sunset is always a treat too.

Come for the culture

While you’re in Oman, take some time to enjoy the country’s unique culture. Visit Muscat’s historic Old City and enjoy its phenomenal architecture. Also be sure to check out some of Oman’s delightful cuisine, which is basic yet very flavorful, including the signature drink, called a kahwa, coffee with cardamom.
