Humans are instinctively hardwired to innovate, optimize, question the impossible – to push the limit.
At Albatros Adventure Marathons, our passion for pushing the limit, sharing great experiences, and achieving something extraordinary led us to originate the “adventure marathon” concept 20 years ago.
In the all-new World’s Fastest Marathon, runners will dash down a paved route that makes a sweeping, serpentine-like descent through the Sierra Nevada mountains into the historic city of Granada.
With a nearly 100% downhill route (less than 1km is without decline), an altitude drop of 1,938 meters (6,358 feet) and a total average descent of 4.6%, this race will keep your legs light and feet flying toward the finish line… FAST.
How much will you shave off your PR? How far will you push the limit? And who knows, maybe someone will push it below the 2-hour barrier?
Considering the current situation regarding COVID-19, we will unfortunately have to postpone the World's Fastest Marathon due to take place on October 3rd 2020 to next year. The 2021 event will take place in September or October 2021 instead. We will announce the date as soon it's confirmed.
