History of Albatros Adventure Marathons, Organizers of Petra Desert Marathon

It all began with in 1998 with a crazy idea to run a marathon on the Great Wall of China. In 1999, this idea became a reality with the running of the first Great Wall Marathon. The initial success of this "adventure marathon" concept led to the creation of a new organizing authority, Albatros Adventure Marathons, which set out to unite international runners through challenges hosted in locations of exceptional natural beauty and historical significance.

During the past two decades, Albatros Adventure Marathons has planned and organized 10 different running travel events around the world – this equates to a total of over 70 events! Today, our collection includes five major, internationally-recognized marathon events, each of which are held annually: The Great Wall Marathon, The Big Five Marathon, The Petra Desert Marathon, The Polar Circle Marathon and The Bagan Temple Marathon.
