Marathon des Sables 2019: The Ultimate Desert Race

The Marathon des Sables (MDS) is perhaps one of the most gruelling ultramarathons of all time. Runners have to endure the extreme weather conditions of the Sahara Desert on a six-day 250-km run while going through sand dunes and elevations

The Marathon Des Sables 2019 will be held from the 5th April to 15th April 2019 in Morocco. But from the 25th November to 5th December 2018, another Marathon Des Sables event will take place in Peru.

The Marathon des Sables Maroc will start at the Merzouga Desert in Morocco.

Where to Stay before Marathon Des Sables 2019

Some of the exotic hotels in the Merzouga village include Riad Nezha, Auberge Les Roches, Ksar Bicha, Auber Takojt, Kasbah Le, The Doors of the Desert, and Kasbah Ksar Merzouga.

How to Get to Merzouga

The best way to get around is to board a bus from Marrakech to Merzouga. There is also car hire available in Marrakech which most tourists prefer because it is more convenient and comfortable in the heat.

Things to Do In Merzouga

– Experience being buried in the Merzouga Sand dunes neck deep in what locals believe to have healing and medicinal properties.
– Ride a camel in the Merzouga Desert.
– Visit the Gallery Laoun.
– Go camping and hiking in the desert.
– See the beauty of Marruecos in a 4×4 off road ride.

Marathon des Sables is for those who love extreme running. It will certainly test your speed, endurance, heat tolerance and thirst tolerance.
