Jogging in Muscat?

Not for me but for my husband who will be there in Muscat for the first time travelling with Oman Airways.

Anyway, other than the heat will it be safe enough for him to jog (along the front) and walk through reception area of hotel with running gear?

Is there a good route to jog for around 4 miles?

It really would help if you could say when your husband will be in MCT and where he'll be staying. We're not mind readers.

Sorry about that but a more diplomatic response would be appreciated.

So, to prevent any attempt to mind read he is staying at the Grand Hyatt in April.

Does that help?

Won't be an issue, there are plenty of areas to go running along the beach near the Hyatt. There are always people out running/walking. The biggest danger when running in Muscat is just the traffic... but there are some pedestrian walkways around Qurum as well as the long beach road for which he would never even have to cross a street.

I think as long as he isn't sloppy (eg. no tiny sleeveless shirts), there wouldn't be an issue with him passing through the lobby.

He doesn't need to go through reception. Out of the garden and then on to the beach. The sand is firm for running most of the time, and there's enough space between the waterline and the football matches in the evenings.

Very good point. The walkway between the hotel and the beach is also the one that leads down to the beach road.
