Running for a new PR is stepping out of one's comfort zone and that is exactly what we have done with our newest event, the World's Fastest Marathon!
Albatros Adventure Marathons traditionally place greater focus on the social aspect, the experience of the run and the victory in simply getting to the finish line - rather than one's "finishing time". Unlike these events, the World's Fastest Marathon puts the clock at the forefront.
With almost 100% downhill route (less than 1km is without decline), and altitude drop of 1,983 meters (6,506 feet), and an average descent of 4.6%, this race course will get your feet moving! It's fast. Perhaps, the World's Fastest?
Downhill running sounds easy, but does present its own set of challenges. Giving attention to downhill running techniques is highly recommended, or you might find yourself crossing the finish line more exhausted than ever!
In order to run, international participants must reserve their race entry, in addition to a multi-day tour package that provides accommodation, social events, sightseeing, select meals and transportation per the itinerary – all the ingredients for a fantastic getaway! What's more, through our cooperation with Mikkeller Beer, the after party is set to keep your feet moving on the dance floor…
With these five days in Granada, participants have time to take in historic and culturally-rich town, behold the breathtaking Sierra Nevada Mountains and truly get a taste of Spain. For those wanting to further explore nearby Costa del Sol, an excursion may be added to your trip.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Local and elite runners, who meet the necessary qualifications, are eligible for special “race only” entry.
