Ultra Trail Atlas Toubkal (UTAT)
This weekend is the 10th anniversary edition of the UTAT. There is a 105km/65 mile ultra, a marathon (42km), a 26km race, a two day challenge comprising the 42km + 26km races, and a 12km race.

The Ultra Trail Atlas Toubkal kicks off at midnight Friday/Saturday (local time), and runners have up to 36 hours to complete an incredibly challenging route with 6500m of elevation. They set off from Oukaimeden in the Atlas Mountains and traverse a series of mountain passes reaching up to 3550m above sea-level. The terrain is technical and brutal - rocks, loose scree, steep climbs and tricky descents. There are long distances between checkpoints, so entrants must be able to take care of themselves in the mountains. If they can, they will be rewarded with stunning scenery - mountain trails, deserted nomad territory and Berber villages virtually unchanged in centuries.

Last year's winners were Daniel Jung (14:07) and Andrea Huser (15:38). The majority of runners can expect to be on their feet for twice as long. It looks an incredibly rewarding challenge. Good luck if you are taking part.
