Video: The Desert Challenge Ultra-marathon

While we’re on the topic of ultra-marathons today, I thought I’d share a video that was released on Facebook over the weekend. It is a promo for the The Desert Challenge TransArabia Race, which is scheduled to take place in Jordan later this year, and will cover distances of 100 km (62.1 miles), 200 km (124.2 miles), or 300 km (186.4 miles) depending on the challenge you want to undertake. It is a non-stop race through that passes the Dead Sea, crosses through the desert of Wadi Rum, and ends at the ancient site of Petra. It promises to be quite an amazing event, and will set the stage for the TransOmania race that will follow next year.
