(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) When it comes to enthusiasm, team spirit and a caring culture, the explicit passion shown by employees of Sohar Aluminium (SA) is very heartening.

These attributes were clearly demonstrated recently when more than 200 employees from across the organisation participated in the annual fun run on SA's premises. The event, having two categories: running and walking, saw healthy competition with good camaraderie amongst all the athletes and the winners in the various categories proudly carried home their trophies.

The event was open for employees and their families making it a fun day for all participants. Students and staff from Al Batinah International School (ABIS) were also invited to participate in the Fun Run with prizes for winners. The Fun Run has firmly established itself as an annual event on Sohar Aluminium's calendar since 2011.

''The aim of this annual event, in particular, is to encourage employees to improve their physical fitness by engaging them in an enjoyable activity. It is also important to spread awareness of the benefits of good health and an active lifestyle to our future generation and the involvement of ABIS students reinforces this message,'' said Said al Masoudi, CEO, Sohar Aluminium. 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.

The ABIS was setup in 2008 by Sohar Aluminium to meet the growing demand for a quality international education for students in the Batinah Region. The students and staff regularly participate in various activities conducted by Sohar Aluminium. Sohar Aluminium was formed in September 2004 to undertake a landmark Greenfield aluminium smelter project in the Sultanate of Oman. Jointly owned by Oman Oil Company, Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC - TAQA and Rio Tinto Alcan, Sohar Aluminium has won global acclaim for its superior, environmentallyfriendly and energy-efficient technology.
