The Atlas Mountain Race is an unsupported single-stage cycling race that will take place in Morocco.

With a grand depart from Marrakech, the Atlas Mountain Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage cycling race through the spectacular mountains of the Atlas and Anti-Atlas. The clock does not stop, and no prizes are awarded. The race will follow gravel, single and double track and old, hand built, colonial roads that have long been forgotten and fallen into disrepair – there will be very little tarmac.


Racers can ride solo or as a pair, along a fixed route with three manned checkpoints where the riders will receive a stamp on their ‘brevet’ card [a brevet is a long-distance bicycle ride with check-points], before heading to the finish line for a well-deserved post-race beer.
