Ironman Oman Muscat 2nd Edition 2020:
Loved it :) ... one of the best races in the region. Is considered as HILLY one and an amazing scenery on the BIKE COURSE.
The Swim is 1.9Km, Bike 90Km where hills starts @ 28Km in AlBustan Area and in 60Km where it goes to steady incline. Then, the last 25Km goes to super fast mode and an amzing one too...
The T1 and Finish line are not near. Therefore, it's you to decide which you prefer to be near by. I recommend the T1 in order to pick and drop your bike in HOTEL, after the race. The Finish Line goes to the PARK, where the EXPO Village is.
Recommended Hotels :
1. Crowne Plaza Muscat : is on the TOP and very nice place, is about 30min walk to Transition. (https://g.page/CPMuscat?share)
2. Ramee Guestline Hotel - Muscat: is not bad and is cost effective. is also 30min. walk to Transition. (https://g.page/ramee-guestline-hotel-muscat?share)
