What to expect
CULTURE + SIGHTSEEING
Morocco off the beaten track
A mere 14km. separate Spain from Morocco and yet our neighboring country is a great unknown. Moroccois difficult to define, its 710,850 km2 give rise to a great diversity of landscapes and people, and make it a continuous surprise that is difficult toget used to. Athousand-year-old culture, a crossroads of civilizations, friendly people,hospitable merchants that are very likely to welcome us with mint tea, dates or some peanuts. Traversing Morocco by car means covering tracks and landscapes of an absolute and overwhelming contrast. From the heights of the Atlas, where we are often likely to find snow along its hard stone tracks, oueds and mudflows that form after seasonal torrential rains, riverbeds of sand in the vicinity of Erfoud, and of course the desert and dunes of Zagora, and Merzouga’s Erg Chebbi. All that, in one week, a week in which every day is a new challenge.
CHALLENGE + ADVENTURE
A playfield for instinct and emotions
No matter what your expectations may be, the Maroc will always surprise you. It doesn’t really matter if you are looking for a personal challenge or to putyourself to the test, form a team and share a unique experience, compete, escape from your routine, leave your comfort zone, have an adventure… Once you cross the starting arch, everything can change… The Maroc is a unique event, with a spirit entirely of its own, that allows inexperienced teams to end up in better positions than experienced pilots and your own expectations to change with each stage and, of course, with each Maroc. Onlytwo things are guaranteed, the first is that this event is both a team challengeand a personal challenge, that each participant will experience differently andthe second is that you’ll find plenty of adventure. This is currently one of the events for amateurs with the highest participation, the most international, the most media oriented, and with services very similar to those of much more professional events. We are pioneers in the use of current technologies, communication, social networks, live satellite tracking of all participants and a 3G rating system that allows online updating of all teams, practically in real time (a unique system designed exclusively for the Maroc). We have implemented improvements in each and every edition, because improvements increase our participants’ safety and allow us to increase the ruggedness of each event, each edition. The challenge is on.
BONDING + COMMUNITY
Stays with you beyond the venue
Since 2011, so many participants have passed through the Maroc, we have decided to create a unique community: the Maroc Challenge CampFire. A platform in which participants can meet, interact and create new synergies. This community pretends to be a manual of experiences, knowledge and trainingfor those who seek information about our event.If you are already a participant or are thinking of joining us, don’t hesitate to create your own profile, you will access information about the Maroc in general and about each edition, you can publish your news and photos, you will have access to the Maroc forum (where you can share or consult experiences), or getin touch with groups of participants from your area or country. Being part of the Maroc community also comes with a prize: with our “Top Members”ranking, we know which of you are most active. The more you communicate, the more you share or help other members, the more distinctions, advantages andeven gifts you can obtain.
