We have 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 2020 edition scheduled for 14 March 2020 until receiving another official instruction from the Ministry, due to risks related to the spread of COVID-19.
We are 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 Wadi Bih Run Dibba 2020 edition event had originally been scheduled for 31st of January but due to the sad passing of the Sultan of Oman, the race was postponed for the 40-day mourning period. The long distances and duration of the event mean that it is not possible to safely hold the event later in the spring or summer and hence it is necessary to postpone the event to the 2020/2021 winter season.
As such, the event has been postponed until Friday, 5 February 2021 and all registrations for the event on 14 March 2020 will be automatically transferred to Friday, 5 February 2021.
We have faced significant challenges this season in holding the event with the change of date and flash floods washing out of the wadi, which necessitated a change to the category distances and routes. But we are determined and committed to preserving the legacy of this unique 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.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Wadi Bih Run Dibba on Friday 5th February 2021.
