He also added how the occasion is gaining momentum with each and every passing year. “There was also a short cycling race for around 20km to add to the excitement. I would like to thank the ROP for giving us full support and helping manage the event as participants increase every year.”
Ahmed Mohammed Suedan who participated for the third year in a row, explained how the occasion is also a fantastic way to spread awareness on sports and physical activities.
“I was happy to take part in the event because I love my country. The event is popular among both the young and old and helps spread knowledge on these kind of sports. Above all, I took part because it coincides with Oman’s Renaissance Day celebrations which is a very important day for me. Oman has undergone development on a large scale in a short period of time. This event was a way of showing our gratitude to our country and our ruler,” Suedan mentioned.
The occasion also hopes to market tourism and calls upon conserving cultural and conventional landmarks in the nation.
