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.

2021 is the time for a new adventure – to invigorate & re-energise – so why not join the fun and do something amazing!
