overview

This amazing eight day challenge to Morocco, takes us on an a five day exhilarating trek along dried-out riverbeds of the Sahara desert, from oasis to oasis. Our route will snake its way through the desert’s emptiness, and along ancient irrigation channels that are still in use today. We’ll get the chance to camp out under the star-lit African sky, and might even catch the sight of a shooting star! Together, we spend our last day and night in the colourful city of Marrakech.

This is a fully inclusive challenge and after registering, you will be provided with a challenge pack with all essential information on your challenge. This challenge will be undertaken on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust to improve the lives of young people with cancer.
