Petra Desert Marathon leads runners past the incredible tombs and caves before venturing into the Jordanian desert.
With temperatures as high as 35°C/95°F and a hilly route offering very little shade, Petra Desert Marathon is an arduous race, but the reward is a sightseeing tour in the land of the Bedouins – a lunar-like landscape of red, yellow, brown and golden-coloured mountains in dreamlike shapes where camels and goats are curious spectators.
To entry you can take up the 5 day tour package, giving you the perfect opportunity to run and experience a unique destination in Jordan. The country offers increible sights not only at Petra by at the awe inspiring Wadi.
Running in the desert to a floating swim in the Dead Sea – Jordan has something for everybody to enjoy, not to mention, the generous Jordanian hospitality!
