Ultra Challenge Sahara
Push yourself further and take on The Saharan Challenge! It’s 2 marathon distances over 2 days, with a fantastic route through the lush Draa Valley down to sun-baked dunes on the desert edge, with rugged mountain scenery, and sleeping under the stars in our Bedouin style base camp. This 5-day trip has it all – a tough challenge, stunning scenery, luxury camping, sun, full support, and a night in Marrakech. An unforgettable Moroccan adventure with some welcome autumn sun!
The UNESCO World Heritage Draa Valley provides a dramatic backdrop for our double marathon distance challenge, across baked rocky trails, through red clay Berber villages, and palmeries, down to the sandy dunes of the mighty Sahara. After a tough day under the Moroccan sun, relax in our private Bedouin campsite with hot showers, dining tents, a bar with cold drinks, entertainment, and luscious local food.
If you’ve done one of our UK Ultra Challenges – you’ll love this unique adventure! There’s the same first-class support & hospitality, combined with a great feeling of camaraderie from a group of 150 or so like-minded adventures who are all up for a challenge. Whether you’re a keen walker or even a would-be ‘Marathon des Sables’ runner, you can join as an individual, with a friend, or as a group, and take the marathons on at your pace. It’s a great value ‘all inclusive’ package – for an unforgettable 2022 Moroccan adventure!
