The roots Run Jordan to Amman International Marathon, which was founded in 2009 to organize the first marathon in the capital Amman. Amman International Marathon was founded by the Greater Amman Municipality and the Association of the brain and nerves (a non-profit organization that has a long history in organizing marathons in the UK, most notably Oltramarathon the Dead Sea and the Red Sea half marathon). I have in mind here the supportive role played by the Beirut Marathon Association to establish the first marathon in the city of Amman in 2009. Having been four years in the organization of this marathon in the Jordanian capital, considered the founders of the Amman International Marathon, it is necessary to take a step to restructure the Amman International Marathon to become in the new version.
Water is available at the start and finish line, and every 3km on the race route. Toilets are available at the starting point of the 21 km (half-marathon), 10km, 4.2km, as well as along the route & at the finish line.
