02 Mar Welcome to Oman: one of the top destinations for 2017
Lonely Planet just published a list with the top destinations for 2017.
Oman is the top 5, and Lonely Planet is absolutely right!
The Sultanate of Oman not only is one of the most beautiful of the world, with a magic desert, high mountains and white and untouched beaches of white sand. Oman Is also one of the safest countries where to travel.
Most of us, at least once, have a dream to run in the desert, to cross high dunes of untouched sand, run next to camels and cross the camps of Beduins, but also to experience the great expanse of the desert and the charm of camping in the wilderness.
For many the dream of desert running hardly becomes true mainly due to high costs of desert races or security issues in this time of general instability, these are just two of the factors that can break the dream. On the other hand, races or tours, that are affordable and safe, often don’t offer the same sense of adventure, complete self-sufficiency and challenge of the long and hard staged races like Marathon des Sables.
The Oman Desert Marathon has chosen a formula to encapsulate the experience of being in the desert and to give runners the opportunity to test themselves and their equipment offering the maximum safety and personal attention to all runners.
The race is 165 kilometers with 6 self-sufficient stages where you will discover the Oasis and the highest dunes of the Oman Desert on the tracks of the ancient caravans, with the maximum security, but not interfering with the sense of vastness and loneliness of the desert.
Before and after the race, runners are guests at the ODM Camp. They can also enjoy the thermal springs of Wadi Bani Khalid, an ideal location to relax and recover after racing. Accommodation, food (both before and after the race), drinks, and transfers are all included. No hidden extras.
Oman Desert Marathon combines the comforts of traveling for leisure and relaxation with the challenge of running alone in the desert. To achieve this result the number of places is limited, as we want to keep this race small and unique.
