On Friday, 19th February, Sohar Aluminium (SA) conducted its annual Fun Run event. The gathering saw around 400 employees, contractors and their families as well as Al Batinah International School’s (ABIS) students and staff participate in the running and walking races. The event is meant to give the participants an opportunity to enjoy having fun and spending quality time with family members and colleagues outside working hours. It also aims at promoting healthy lifestyle and the importance of physical exercising to stay fit.



Sohar Aluminium’s Annual Fun Run is one of the most eagerly awaited events for SA employees, contractors and families since 2011, and always witnesses a large number of participants taking part.



The event, having two categories: running for 8 kilometres and walking for 4 kilometres, saw healthy competition with good camaraderie amongst all the athletes and the winners in the various categories proudly carried home their trophies. Children below the age of 16 had separate categories in running and walking for 4 kilometres.



Sohar Aluminium firmly believes that people are its number one priority and thus has a number of events and initiatives spread throughout the year focusing on its employees, their families and the wider community. This comes as a part of SA’s series of Key Stakeholder Engagement Events. These family oriented events give a personal face to the industry and constitute an excellent platform for sharing the company values and communicating vital messages.



Sohar Aluminium was formed in September 2004 to undertake a landmark Greenfield aluminium smelter project in the Sultanate of Oman. It is jointly owned by Oman Oil Company, Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC - TAQA and Rio Tinto.
