Trans Sahara Marathon Morocco

Running between dunes and mountains, in the beautiful Moroccan desert.

Zagora is a city of the desert wanderers, located in the southeast of Morocco

Originally it was called ‘Tazagourt”, Zagora is small town in the valley of the Drâa River in Drâa-Tafilalet in southeastern Morocco, a popular tourist destination. It’s the door of the Sahara desert, a place of reflection and well-deserved rest. You will be surprised by the friendliness of the people, the traditional architecture, its exquisite cuisine with spice flavours and by the variety of landscapes like the palm groves and the dunes.

Zagora is a common pitstop on the way to the Sahara Desert, and was formerly the last stopover on the road to Timbuktu. On the main boulevard of the city, you can still see a famous signpost stating that Timbuktu is 52 days away by camel.
