05 Mar Desert running: how to make it safe and affordable
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 is165 kilometres 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.
