Registration is still open if you wish to participate or you can still go down and watch some of the best athletes in the world in action.

WADI BIH RUN
Friday, January 31 

The profile of the Wadi Bih has increased rapidly since its inception in 1993, and this year’s 30km, 50km and 72km routes will be as tough as it gets, as tarmac roads and graded grave tracks will be part of the challenges that take you through the picturesque Hajar Mountains.

The run starts and finishes in Dibba, with the beautiful mountain surroundings of Oman serving as an ideal setting to a gruelling race. It will be an unforgettable experience!

START TIME: From 4.30am (depending on the distance)
