Registration for the Jordan Thru-Hike 2020 Opens

6 Mar 2020 to 20 Apr 2020
Um Qais

Registration is open for the Jordan Trail Association’s Thru-Hike 2020, where hikers will walk the entire length of Jordan between March 6 and April 20, 2020. The 650-kilometer trail extends from Um Qais to Aqaba and takes 44 days to complete.

The thru-hike event is one of the main annual fundraising activities for the Jordan Trail Association, an organization established in 2016 to develop, maintain and promote the Jordan Trail. Participation in this event contributes to the development of the Jordan Trail and support of local communities along the way. USAID BEST has assisted the Jordan Trail Association since 2016 to support the Jordan Trail as an important national tourism experience, facilitate economic opportunities for communities along the trail, and help strengthen Jordan’s position as an attractive tourism destination.
