A partially self-sufficient 165 km (NONSTOP) or 100 km or 60 km race (GPS system is mandatory) with views of Petra Mountain and 3 stages in the Wadi Rum Desert. This is an adventure that follows in the footsteps of Laurence of Arabia!

Located at a crossroads, Jordan has always been, throughout its history, a meeting point and a place of settlement. It remains today as it used to be. This vibrant country where races, religions and people have mixed and influenced each other, offers a life of balance thanks to its unique and cosmopolitan character. Jordan is undoubtedly a kingdom that is deeply rooted in history and culture. As soon as you arrive there, you become aware of the wealth of its heritage. Although they have long been consigned to history books, the ruins of its civilizations have remained and continue in the life of this kingdom and the souls of its inhabitants ...
