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?
NOVEL CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
We, at Albatros Adventure Marathons, understand your concerns regarding COVID-19 and how this may affect your plans to participate in our marathon. The health and safety of our runners is our top priority and for this reason, we are monitoring the situation closely on a daily basis. We are aware of the seriousness of the situation and are following the WHO guidelines and travel restrictions imposed by numerous countries.
We are still hopeful that the situation will improve and that we can move forward with our race. For the moment, we are therefore not able to make a final decision on the race being cancelled, such a decision will only be made at the earliest 4 weeks prior to the event, but no later than 2 weeks before the start of the tour package.
Our booking terms will remain the same, but in the unfortunate case of a race being cancelled by us, we will issue a full refund.
Please bear with us during these uncertain times, and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Stay safe and hope to see you soon!
