Description

You cannot miss this amazing and different trail running weekend to break the day-TO-day routine. I will guide trough the most outstanding places of the Atlas Mountains and take you up to Toukbal summit.

If you want to disconnect yourself from the routine and live a unique outdoor experience, I recommend you to come to the Atlas Mountains. This time, it’s my pleasure to invite you to an intense trail running weekend. With my help, you will run among the best places of this Moroccan region. As a coronation, and before returning to work on Monday morning, you will also run up to Mount Toubkal summit.

Some of the reasons why I like to take my clients on this trail running adventure are the following:

  • In addition to exercising the body, you’ll enjoy cultural tours,
  • You’ll discover the way of life of the Berber, native villagers,
  • It’s a great opportunity to conquer Mt. Toubkal, the highest peak of North Africa,
  • The Moroccan meals you’ll taste in this trip are really delicious.

These mini-holidays will also allow you to be acclimatized to the altitude before the summit attack. Please take into account that they will be 3 intensive days. A very good physical preparation is mandatory. You must be capable of running a half-marathon in the mountains. Furthermore, you must also have some previous experience and training in running up several mountains.

Finally, at the bottom of this description you’ll find the specifications of the itinerary. If you have more doubts or you need help to get decided, please contact me. Live a unique trail running experience in the Atlas Mountains in the company of a mountain leader who knows the area perfectly!

Itinerary

Day 1: STARTING POINT TO IMLIL

A taxi will transfer you from Marrakech to the mountains. We’ll start running uphill to Tizi Oudite, where we’ll have lunch. Then, we will continue passing by the village of Tizi Oussem, over the Tizi Mzik pass, and down into Imlil. We’ll spend the first night in that Valley.

Day 2: RUN TO TOUBKAL HUT

We’ll have 2 options for the morning. Either a restful time to look around Imlil and buy souvenirs, or a 10-km tour running in Imlil and exploring these valleys. In the afternoon we’ll run up to the Toubkal Mountain Hut, at 3.200m in order to get ready for the big day.

Day 3: SUMMIT DAY

After an early start from the Toubkal Hut we will run up to the summit of Toubkal, at 4167m. Then, we’ll run back down to the hut again for a hot lunch and something to drink. After that, we’ll head back to Imlil in time for a taxi ride back to Marrakech. We did it!!!


About the guide

guide profile img

I am a certified International Mountain Leader and a Summer Mountain Leader (UK). In addition, I hold a Diploma in Conservation and Wildlife Management.
Originally from Great Britain, I am now based near Marrakech, in Morocco. Actually, in a Berber town at the foot of the Berber Mountains.
The love for travel runs in my veins. In the Sahara I lived with nomads. In Siberia I met reindeer herders. In Mongolia I traveled with yurt-dwellers.
The stunning landscapes and nice people of Morocco have enchanted me, which is why I now live here. My goal is sharing with my clients the exotic beauty that I've discovered here.
The environment is of extreme importance to me. In particular, I'm interested in geology and birds of prey.
Besides speaking English and French, I can get by in Berber.
My work is not limited to this area: I also do the Tour du Mont Blanc trek in the Alps.
