Entry Packages

Like all Albatros Adventure Marathons, Petra Desert Marathon is designed to be more than just a race. It's also about enjoying time together with family, friends and other running-minded spirits. Cheerful spectators are welcome too!

In order to register for Petra Desert Marathon, you must sign up for one of the following tour packages. Special entry options are available for residents of the Middle East and Jordan.

Have a look, you’re only a few steps away from the run of a lifetime!


Race entry is possible in conjunction with a multi-day tour package that includes social events, tours and transportation according to the itinerary, 4-nights hotel accommodation in your chosen category, and a 3-day entry pass for Petra – all the ingredients for a fantastic getaway. With the deluxe option, you'll even have time to relax poolside and swim in the Dead Sea!

The same packages are available for non-running travel companions and provide entry to all Race Day festivities, as well as other pre-/post-race activities with the runners.

Below, the standard, comfort and deluxe options are described in detail.

Participants, who meet the necessary residency requirements, are eligible for special entry options. Contact us for details.
