Sohar Port and Freezone arranged for the participation of 18 families from Sohar and 876 children from the ‘Get Sohar Active’ campaign in the Al Mouj Muscat Marathon. Around 25 employees were also part of the event while Mark Geilenkirchen, CEO, fired the starting pistol to commence the Kids’ Race, which took place on Saturday, February 22nd.
Mark said, “It was incredibly motivating to see thousands of young children who showed up and were excited to take part. I believe that participating in activities that enhance health and wellness at an early age will play a huge part later on in their lives and be influential in building the future leaders of tomorrow.”
To further inspire running in the community, Sohar says it will provide designated running routes of 5km and 10km set out around the port and free zone for local runners. “We aim to inculcate a culture of health and wellness within our community in Sohar and the Al Mouj Marathon is the perfect platform for us to showcase our support for the well-being of all citizens in Oman, alongside highlighting the importance of fitness, hard work and dedication,” added Mark.
