After a 2 year absence, our popular Saharan Challenge made a triumphant return last week. 150 runners and trekkers made their way to Morocco with our team, to take on 2 marathons over 2 days in the world’s largest desert!

The adventure started with a bus transfer over the mighty Atlas Mountains, before entering the Draa Valley and arriving at our Bedouin desert camp. This was home for the next 3 nights, with Moroccan food & entertainment each night. 

Anyone who has taken on one of our Ultra Challenge events will know what to expect. With fully stocked rest stops along the route, staffed by our wonderful local crew and UK staff, each participant was well supported as they took on this formidable challenge. 

There was a great atmosphere at the finish line, with a commemorative medal for everyone, before a return back to camp and a desert party to celebrate the achievement. 

The Saharan Challenge will be back for 2023, with a new + improved itinerary, 50km option and an extra day in beautiful Marrakech. We hope to see you there!
