Dead Sea Ultra Marathon
One of the most gruelling races on earth takes the brave from
Amman, some 2,953 feet (900m) above sea level, to the Dead Sea, the
lowest point on earth. The shade-less tarmac provides the surface
and only the fittest dare attempt it due to the scorching climate.
The race is on behalf of the Society for the Care of Neurological
Patients headed by HRH Prince Firas Bin Raad, in aid of increasing
awareness of neurological diseases and traumas.
