Just a quick one for the more fit readers out there. The InterContinental Hotel Muscat is holding the Muscat Mile Swim on June 24 (Friday). According to the information available on the four Facebook groups for the event – search for Muscat Mile Swim – the event will feature a series of swimming races including 200m, 400m, 800m and 1600m. The twist is that instead of fighting out for top spot in the temperature controlled pool, competitors will be racing in the sea in front of the hotel.
Various prizes are on offer and participants will receive a complimentary breakfast.
In order to take part, participants must register by midday on June 21. On the day, everyone taking part must be on site and registered by 6.30am so the races can begin at 7am. There is no cost to take past.
For details, contact email@example.com or call Lea on 95784991. Special rates for those wanting to spend the night after the event are available.
Also for people looking to swim regularly in a group, there is the Muscat Amateur Swimming Association who holds regular swims on Thursday mornings and helps you hook up with like-minded people.
Have a nice weekend!
