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?
While we remain optimistic that the world will win control over Covid-19 during 2021 there’s obviously still uncertainty and questions for the coming year. We have used the past several months to become as prepared as possible to organize races in the post-corona era and are positive that we can live up to various restrictions and regulations set forth by the Spanish authorities. With that said, however, we understand that many of you may still wonder how Covid-19 will effect travelling in the year to come, which is why we have outlined our policy for possible Covid-19 travel restrictions to give you peace of mind while still being able to secure your spot at the World's Fastest Marathon.

If the race is postponed to a later date you will have the choice between moving your entry to the new date or receive a full refund of payments made to Albatros Adventure Marathons.
Note that the decision to cancel or postpone the race will be taken no later than 4 weeks prior to the event, but in most cases the decision will be taken at least 8 weeks in advance.
If official travel restrictions prohibiting you from travelling to Spain are in place 30 days before the event you can cancel your booking and receive a full refund of the payments made to Albatros Adventure Marathons.
This includes restrictions disabling you to depart from your home country as well as restrictions banning you from entering Spain due to Covid-19 regulations.
