Run the Ancient Desert

Wadi Rum Protected Area, Jordan

Wadi Rum Protected Area, Jordan

Sat 29th May 2021

Organiser's Description

Join us on the sandy dunes of Jordan for our first ever desert race. The magic of Wadi Rum - a protected desert wilderness in southern Jordan - cannot be justified in words or pictures, it simply has to be experienced. We cannot wait to welcome you to this ancient desert that has already become an iconic backdrop to our Impact Marathon Series.

We start before first light and hadtorches are a must as you begin your way across the desert. The colours around you will gently change as the sun rises behind the iconic desert mountains. By the time the sun has risen, you will be fully into your race and into the softer section of sand that will surely make this race one of the hardest of your life. You will be pushed to your limit, you will feel like you can't go on. But when you dig deep, when you keep moving, you will earn the right to proudly say you conquered The Beast Of Wadi Rum. Half marathon and 10k races also.
