Marathon du Marrakech wil be run in 2012 on Sunday January 29.
Marrakech; the royal city in the south of Morocco offers an extraordinary setting
to run your (semi) Marathon. Streets are decorated with palm and olive trees, houses and the medieval city wall are colored with red clay, in the background a blue sky with the white snow capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains. The Marrakech Marathon is well known for runners from all over the world. The circuit is one of the fastest in the world. Fastest time in 2010 was 2:09:52 for the Ethiopian Girma Beyene GEZAHN. For the semi marathon the fastest time was 1:02:00.
In January climate is ideal. In the morning it is even fresh while temperature is slowly climbing towards 20 degrees Celsius; ideal for running. You want to set a new record ..??
Running a (semi) marathon in a different culture and country ...?? This is already very special.
But if you go there you need a little more time to visit the magic city of Marrakech and the mountains which are so close. Maroc Travel organises a complete 6 day tour.
