Top World Run Races: Marathon des Sables

Marathon des Sables


8-18 April 2016
Morocco, Sahara

This one is known as the toughest footrace on earth! For those who fancy a once in a lifetime running challenge then the Marathon des Sables, also known as Marathon of the Sands, is the one you’ll want to take up.

It’s turned into a tradition of passage for ultra runners, who have to run about 250km across the Sahara desert within one week, carrying packs with all the supplies they need on their back, while coping with the scorching heat and suffering blisters every day.

This running event is undoubtedly one of the toughest in the world but worth trying if you’re not afraid of high temperatures.
