Starting in the ancient city of Petra, the Petra Desert Marathon leads runners past the incredible tombs, mountainside carvings, and caves before venturing into the arid, lunar-like landscapes of the Jordanian desert. Choose the marathon, half-marathon, or cheer on the runners!
Rich in history, culture and scenic nature, Jordan offers its visitors superb possibilities for an exciting vacation. From the splendid ruins of Petra and the vast and awe-inspiring Wadi Rum desert, to a float in the Dead Sea - Jordan has something for everyone to enjoy, not to mention the warm hospitality of the Jordanian people.
Embark on an Arabian adventure and run the desert race of a lifetime!
