The Petra Desert Marathon is unique desert race set in and around the famed city of Petra in Jordan.

Starting in the World Heritage site of Petra, the race course winds its way through this incredible UNESCO-listed attraction and around the mountainous terrain and through the desert outside of Petra. 

This race offers a challenging course in the form of many hills and the dusty desert where participants meet goats and camels along the way. The Petra Desert Marathon has existed since 2009 and remains a popular desert race.
