Saharan Challenge 2019

When: Thursday 10 October 2019 - Monday 14 October 2019

Where: Morrocco

This is a challenge of a lifetime – with an adventurous route along the Draa Valley down to sun baked sand dunes with rugged mountain scenery and sleeping under the stars in our private Bedouin style camp.

The Challenge

This 5 day trip has it all, tough route, stunning scenery, Moroccan culture, luxury camping, lots of sun, sand, and full support all the way!

The UNESCO World Heritage Draa Valley provides a dramatic backdrop for the iconic Saharan Challenge – 2 marathon distances in 2 days across baked rocky trails, through Moroccan villages and palmeries, down to the dunes of the desert.

After a tough day under the Moroccan Sun, relax in the private Bedouin Campsite (complete with with showers and a bar) then go sleep under a canopy of stars!

We all need new adventures to invigorate & energise – join us and do something amazing!

You can walk, jog or run two marathon distances in two days down to the desert.

Action Challenge the tour operator we partner with for the challenge will be there all the way offering full support and hospitality to that winning medal.
