One of the most gruelling races on earth takes the brave from Amman, some 2,953 feet (900m) above sea level, to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. The shade-less tarmac provides the surface and only the fittest dare attempt it due to the scorching climate. The race is on behalf of the Society for the Care of Neurological Patients headed by HRH Prince Firas Bin Raad, in aid of increasing awareness of neurological diseases and traumas.
