Amman Marathon 2012
For the budding runners or fast walkers, it's on October 19th. Registration and payment online.
There's a 10K fun-run that you can walk (the faster the better....) with your friends, family, etc. It will give you the thrill of the starting line and end up in the Roman amphitheater downtown. You can hang around for the award ceremony, with your running number, and feel like a real athlete, basking under the gaze of thousands of adoring fans...
Everybody who finishes will get a medal but last year I had to fight to get mine. So walk fast and get to there first!
