Enjoy a race like no other! The Petra Desert Marathon is a challenging adventure marathon set in the beautiful desert region of Jordan. Starting in the ancient city of Petra, the route takes runners on a remarkable race in the area surrounding Petra. From the lunar-like mountain landscape to the arid desert, runners navigate challenging terrain in the dry desert heat.
We offer a five-night (six-day) package, which includes your hotel accommodations, English speaking guide and a three-day entry to Petra. In addition, you have the option to extend your trip for three nights on the Adventure Extension in Wadi Rum (UNESCO World Heritage site), Dana Valley, as well as the capital city of Amman OR on the Cultural Extension with visits to Madaba, Mount Nebo, As-Salt, Amman, and Jerash.
In Jordan you will find delicious cuisine, which is based on traditional Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences; be able to explore historical sites; and enjoy the warm hospitality of the Jordanians.

The event...a singular world-class desert event in and of itself. The UNESCO site history guaranteed to bring chills on 40 C days if one remembered the thousands of lives passing before the historic Treasury, the Roman ruins, the Monastery, the cave shops, and other areas from move than 2,000 years.
Overall - a great trip. Once again Marathon Tours and Travels does an outstanding job on seeing that runners, guest and family members received Class A service. Marathon Tours and Travel, and Mr. Scott Guillemette - a top notch travel agency and Mr. Guillemette is one of the best travel agent/planner that I have ever had the pleasure in working with.
Cannot thank your company and your staff enough for organizing this remarkable race! Done a few cool stuffs in my life on my own, so I was a bit hesitant at the beginning about travelling with a group. To my greatest surprise I had a blast! From my arrival to Jordan to my departure, I felt I was well looked after. Very well organized trip! Looking forward to see you all again!
