Porto Dead Sea Ultra Marathon to be held on April 3.

Amman, Mar. 10 (Petra) -- Jordanian Association of Marathons (Run Jordan) Tuesday announced that the Porto Dead Sea Ultra Marathon will be held on April 3, under the patronage of HRH Prince Firas Bin Ra'ad.

Run Jordan is in partnership with Amer Group Holding (Porto Dead Sea) as part of its approach towards promoting internal and external tourism.

The association asked people wishing to participate in the Dead Sea Ultra Marathon to visit Run Jordan offices in Amman-Shmeisani‎‏ or to browse its website

The Dead Sea Ultra Marathon will comprise three races, the 50-kilometre (km) ultra-marathon, which is the main event, a 21 km half marathon and a 10 km race.

The enduring appeal of this running event stems primarily from the geography of its unique route -- starting in Amman and spiraling down to the lowest point on earth on the shores of the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley.
