Ammon News - The 8th edition of the Rum International Marathon is scheduled for October 22, announced Nayef Bakhit, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA).

In a press conference on Tuesday, Bakhit said that organizing the marathon at this time signals to the world that Jordanian tourism, namely in the "Golden Triangle" area (Wadi Rum, Petra and Aqaba), has returned to normalcy.

The marathon, which is organized by Unlimited Distances, is part of the authority's efforts to attract international tourists to the region and will have a positive impact on Jordan in general and Aqaba in particular, he added.

About 84 runners from Arab and foreign countries will be participating in the marathon, which, Bakhit said, is a "new addition to the artistic, heritage and tourism activities that began in Aqaba, which is now a green zone."
