Maverick x TENZING Trails Camp Morocco 2024
October 3 - 8 2024 | TOUBKAL, MOROCCO
Remote landscapes, jagged routes and mountains of elevation. Welcome to the Maverick x TENZING Trails. These small-scale, intimate camps are attended by those who are in pursuit of adventure. Taking place in stunning corners of our globe, each camp location has been carefully curated to showcase the best trail running each location has to offer. The sense of achievement never comes from comfort, power the way to your summit and crush it with our Maverick x TENZING Trails.
The Atlas Mountains are an amazing place to run, so we are thrilled to return in 2024 for our 6-day camp in Morocco.
Steeped in history and culture, Morocco offers a whole new experience, and we can’t wait to show you why we’re so excited to explore this with you.
The journey that we are taking, ventures into the mountains where North Africa’s highest peak, Jebel Toubkal, can be found. At 4167m into the heavens, the views are spectacular, which is more than a reward for your efforts in scaling it. This quasi-mythical mountain is the most eulogised peak in the country and it well-deserves the praise heaped upon it. In summer it is an adventure that most reasonably fit people can tackle in two or three days from Imlil.
The mountainous terrain offers a different experience to the more popular alpine destinations, as you wind your way through ancient Berber settlements, whilst soaking up the breathtaking views to Mt Toubkal. This will be an experience you will not forget.
You don't have to be a well-seasoned ultra runner for this camp. Just be comfortable running on trails and being out on your feet for the day. We will choose appropriate routes, and always give you options.
