World's Fastest Marathon

Ways to Enter

Like all Albatros Adventure Marathons, World's Fastest Marathon is designed to be more than just a race. We want you to be able to run in spectacular places, surrounded by charming people, and exposed to new cultural experiences. It’s not just about the race – it’s about enjoying time together with family, friends, and other running-minded spirits while exploring the world. Spectators welcome!

In order to register for the race, you MUST enter with one of the following options: 


International Participants

For international participants, race entry is only possible in conjunction with a multi-day tour package. The packages include all the ingredients for a fantastic getaway: accommodation, social events, sightseeing, and select meals and transportation per the itinerary. Packages also generally include ample amounts of free time, during which you can choose to join organized excursions or explore the region at your own pace. 

Amidst the towering crags of Spain’s Sierra Nevadas, enjoy some sweet Spanish wine after running the fastest marathon of your life. Set with a nearly 100% downhill route, let the mountain roads carry you down toward victory (and toward tapas!) in the World’s Fastest Marathon. 



Residents of Spain

Participants who meet the necessary Spanish residency requirements are eligible for local entry, which includes only the race. 

Please note: If you are looking to enjoy an extended holiday in Granada and reside elsewhere in Spain, it is certainly possible to join one of the standard international packages. 

As proof of eligbility, residents and citizens of Spain must present a current, valid residency permit and/or passport. Upon receiving your entry, we will contact you to request copies of your official, government-issued documentation.
