Spartan Race descends on the Middle East and will bring a different terrain to the first Sprint race in Oman on October 21st.

Muscat’s adrenaline lovers and sports enthusiasts will descend on the Jebel Sifah beach, onto a five plus-kilometre run with more than 20 obstacles, designed to be fun for participants of all fitness levels. The challenge will be divided into two categories comprising of the ‘Open’ and ‘Elite’ races.

Additionally, the Spartan Kids Race is open to children age 4 to 15 years, and will set them on a kilometre filled with fun, fitness and outdoor excitement.

Beginner and professional obstacle racers will be challenged to push themselves beyond their limits, test their endurance, and fully embrace the Spartan lifestyle.

Rayyan Yacob Agha, Spartan Race Arabia’s Managing Director said:

“After organising our first three Spartan Races in the region, we received a lot of demand to bring the event to Oman. As the countdown draws near, contenders and spectators can look forward to tests of strength, challenges of endurance and a Spartan experience unlike any other.”

To introduce Muscat residents and all prospective racers to the Spartan lifestyle, free Workout Tour sessions are taking place every Friday at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.

With more than 2,500 participants and countless spectators expected to attend, the Spartan spirit will be on full display with a barbed wire, intense obstacles, and medals awaiting challengers. With more than four million Spartans worldwide embracing the challenge, the event has quickly emerged as a global must-see event.
