What people are saying about Trail Running | Morocco



Marc is a really good guide and runner, the run itself is really nice, great scenery and interesting! It was also very easy to book!! Highly recommend!!



Amazing three days spent running in the Atlas Mountains with Marc, a highly professional and super friendly guide. We passed through Berber villages where we stopped off for tea and took in 35-30kms most days in amazing conditions. Can't wait for my next trip!
