Join The Atlas Hope Ultra

The Atlas Hope Ultra is an 84KM ultra marathon through Morocco's Atlas Mountains aiming to help earthquake-affected communities. It's a unique all-inclusive week-long event that attracts novice ultra runners and experienced athletes to the High Atlas Mountains. The event aims at bringing transformative changes to local communities devastated by an earthquake in the Atlas region.

The Atlas Hope Ultra is not just a race -- it's also a fundraising challenge. All runners and participants are encouraged to raise funds to support the earthquake-stricken local communities.

During this special week-long event, as a runner, you'll get to interact with the communities you've helped and undertake the 84KM Ultra, which is scheduled for the fourth day of the event.
