Sand Marathon

 

 

Last week was one of the toughest marathons in the world - "Sandy Marathon┬╗ (Marathon des Sables). This year's race took place in the 26 th time and it was attended by 844 marathon runners. The race for 250 miles is traditionally held in the Moroccan Sahara.
To get to the finish line, participants need to overcome the 254 miles under the scorching sun of African deserts. In the entire history of the marathon age of participants ranged from 14 to 76 years. It was attended by athletes, the Olympians and former gold medalists, scientists, polar researchers, students, housewives and yoga.

 

 


Part in the marathon is 2,600 U.S. dollars, and the grand prize is about 4500 dollars. By and large, the prize money is not so valuable, because the participation is necessary to pay the registration fee, which amount to the cost of air travel may well be comparable to that prize.
