The Atlas Mountain Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage cycling race that starts in Marrakesh, crosses the Moroccan Atlas before taking riders through the Anti-Atlas and on to Agadir.
The clock does not stop and there are no prizes. It follows gravel, single and double track and old colonial pistes that have long been forgotten and fallen into disrepair. The race starts on the 15th of February with a ‘grand départ’ from Marrakech.
Riders will follow a 1145 kilometers fixed route that passes through three staffed control points. They will need to get a stamp in their brevet card at each, before finally heading to the finish line near Agadir in Sidi Rabat, a picturesque village on the Atlantic coast.
