Anyone know anything at all about camel racing; it seems to be very elusive!
I will be in Oman travelling around between 21-31 March 2013
Thanks a million
Hey mate, am also from the uk and will be in oman during those dates. I think camel racing is on fridays but will try to find out more and re-post if i find anything more out
I'll also be there next week. Have you found any further info?
Nope. So far all ive been managed to get from the locals is that its in the dessert. Awesome. Someone else told me it was in three cities, none of them muscat...
Hi, I have emailed the royal races (using another email address as the one provided above which did not work) so if that gets me somewhere I'll share any interesting pieces of info
Thing is that Camel racing is not really a national thing that people follow. I does take place, but normal people are not aware of it. I do not know a single individual who is interested in Camel races. Only interested people would be the Royal Camels thing and some people who own racing camels. To ordinary people such as myself, we are completely clueless.
I looked for information in the Arabic media, I found the following link which is in Arabic:

Not a very good translation, but does the job.
Relevant information is that the national camel races for season 2012-2013 started on 19th September 2012 in Mudhaibi. The season finale will be on 25-28 March 2013 in Barka.
I hope this helps.Edited: 4:32 am, March 22, 2013
