Amman, Jordan

Scandinavian Forest

Far to the north end of Amman, runners will find a moderately hilly route in the Scandinavian Forest. The route begins from the roads of Al Hanou, then follows smooth dirt double-track to a captivating vista of the Jordanian countryside. It’s a short route at less than 3 km, but the hill work keeps things interesting, and there are plenty of quiet roads in the area for runners to add-on.

Special thanks to Crossfit Crescent, Amman Road Runners, and Running Amman for their help with this route.
