DISCOVER Gravel EPIC | marrakesh

First up in March 2020 is an unparalleled opportunity to explore Marrakesh and the wonders of the Atlas Mountains. After you arrive in beautiful, exotic Marrakesh, give yourself some time to soak up the atmosphere of the city’s markets filled with spices, exotic fruits and handmade artifacts before you head to our base, a luxury camp at the foot of the Atlas Mountains.

Wake up to the sunlit mountains on race day before you start exploring the area. The course will lead you through arid plains to the majestic Atlas Mountains, the highest range in Northern Africa, rising up to over 4000m. After a tough but beautiful climb you will descend into green valleys before you finally leave the mountains and race through the desert trying to beat the sunset.  And when it is all over, relax, recover and share your stories in front of a bonfire in the camp. The Marrakesh Gravel Epic race is a day we promise you will never forget. While you are racing, we will make sure your whole family is having an equally good time with activities for everyone, from hot air ballooning, to ATV tours or camel rides, market tours and much more.  The Gravel Epic race is an event for the whole family; racers, partners and kids.
