Runderlust: 2 Bucket List Race Destinations

This weekend there are some cracking events for your running bucket list from the Ladakh Ultra to the Lima Half Marathon. But our pick of the crop for this weekend are races that sum up ice and fire!

First up, is the Petra Marathon in Jordan, which starts in the ancient city of Petra, and takes you past incredible tombs, mountainside carvings and caves before venturing into the lunar-like landscapes of the Jordanian desert. There’s also a half if you aren’t a fan of overly hot running for 26.2 miles.

For slightly cooler but as spectacular surroundings, this weekend also sees the Jungfrau Marathon taking place over in Switzerland, climbing from 500m above sea level at the start to 2100 meters at the finish line. Stunning!
