The 35th edition of the MARATHON DES SABLES will go down in the history of the race as one of, if not the toughest edition.
Due to the Covid pandemic, the April 2020 edition was postponed three times to finally take place in October 2021.
Heat and conditions in October for the Sahara and Morocco are usually very similar to April, however, this year, the race had intense heat from beginning to end. Add to the mix sickness, and only 50% of the race completed the 250km journey. Rachid El Morabity won his 8th edition and Aziza Raji her 1st. A final race day summary is here.
