In March 2020, we received an official letter from the Sultan of Oman, Oman Ministry of Tourism, and the Governorate Of Musandam in Kasab, instructing us to postpone the Wadi Bih Run Dibba until receiving another official instruction from the Ministry, due to risks related to the spread of COVID-19.
We were deeply disappointed by this news but respect the decision made by the Ministry and their concern over public health and the measures they are taking to reduce the risk to the local population. It is our responsibility, as race organizers and as members of the public, to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
The road border crossing between UAE – Dibba and Oman – Dibba has been closed since March 2020 and there are no indications as to when and if this will reopen.
Hence, on this basis, it is not be possible to hold the event in Dibba, Oman on Friday, 5 February 2021. For those entrants who had not taken a refund, their previous registrations for the event on 14 March 2020 have been transferred to Friday, 5 February 2021, which would take place at the Hatta Wadi Hub by Meeras, Hatta, U.A.E.
We have faced significant challenges over the last year in holding the event with the change of date due to the sad passing of the Sultan and flash floods washing out of the wadi, but we are determined and committed to preserving the legacy of this unique, challenging and beautiful trail run, which has been ongoing since 1993.
The rapid spread of the COVID-19 has created an unprecedented situation with implications on every aspect of life and we thank you for your understanding.
Rest assured that we have taken the necessary precautions and have implemented all the recommended COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of all the participants at the event.

We look forward to welcoming you once again to the Wadi Bih Run Hatta on Friday, 5 February 2021.
