Morocco. Considered one of the world's most prestigious marathons
and one of the fastest courses in the world, this is an occasion
not to be missed. You can be there to race and explore the sights
and sounds of the city on this exciting holiday.
Travel Morocco with Intrepid
We've teamed up with Intrepid Travel to bring you an exclusive
eight-day itinerary exploring the ancient sites of Morocco and
taking part in the 31st edition of the exhilarating (half or full)
International Marathon of Marrakech.
In addition to the main event, you will feed the soul and the
stomach on a foodie tour of the souks of Marrakech, visit an Argan
oil co-operative and vineyard and spend an afternoon in Essaouira,
a walled city on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, all in the company
of other readers. After the race, you will enjoy a traditional
hammam treatment, followed by a well-earned massage to help you
recover from your exertions.
The Marrakech Marathon
The real highlight, however, is racing on the Marrakech
marathon's flat course, along alleys of palm trees, through lush
orange and olive groves and the stunning red-tinged ramparts of the
city that began construction in 1126. You're certain to have an
experience you will remember for a lifetime and form friendships
that will last just as long.
