We are going Off-the-grid, no place for hot water showers or wifi.
14 runners and 3 expedition leaders will become Berbers for a week, crossing the Atlas mountains from north to south.
For 6 days starting from the Northern side of the Atlas Mountains we’ll cross the Tizi’n’Timit pass towards the remote heart of the Atlas, following deep canyon south towards the Sahara desert.
On Day 5 we will be transferred to a place close to the Merzouga Dunes where we’ll spend the next two days running South through the Sahara Desert towards the Algerian border (no we won’t cross it). When we say we are going remote we say are talking about time travel.
Warning: Definitely not to be confused with a “vacation” or a “tour”, don’t expect 21st-century comfort, we are going to remote places were people live like centuries ago, if this still sound good, you might be one of us.
