Trans Atlas Marathon

May 4, 2018 - May 14, 2018

“An absolute one of a kind race!” – Jean-Paul Van der Bas who ran the Trans Atlas Marathon in 2016

What is so very different about Trans Atlas Marathon is the scale of it.  The absolutely immeasurable level of intimacy and contact with the people who live in the spectacular scenery through which you will run.

The High Atlas mountains are an area of extreme natural beauty, untouched and undeveloped, retaining the full authenticity of a world of another time.

By becoming part of the tribe of Trans Atlas Marathon runners, you will not only be put through some of the toughest running on the planet but you will be part of a group that is small enough to enjoy what is rare these days in extreme events; true camaraderie and contact on a human scale.

The organisers of this epic 6 stage race are the world famous Ahansal brothers (Mohamad and Lahcen), who made their names by coming first and second place in 15 editions of the Marathon des Sables race in the Moroccan Sahara.  These two men have run and in some cases won some of the toughest races on the planet and finally decided in 2012 to start their own extreme foot race across the High Atlas mountains in terrain that will keep you gasping for breath not only physically but also metaphorically through the diverse beauty of the landscape they want you to experience.
