¡Buah, what an experience! 

We just returned from an adventure of four days through the desert that has left us astonished. The past six of November we landed in Marrakech. During the following week, an exotic journey was waiting for us, that consisted in following the Draa River, an old and dry river in the south part of Morroco. 

Within a team of thirteen runners, we left Marrakech at eight a.m and, after eight hours of ban, we finally got to M’hamid, the tiny village oasis from where we were about to start our itinerary. The next day, while the orange sun of Africa was rising, me and my mates, among them my daughter and my big son, were just starting what would be 140 Km of pure desert.  

Surrounded by a strong team spirit, unforgettable conversations, and full motivation, we overcame a total of four gaps with stop in authentic camps offered by autochthonous individuals of the region, mostly Bereberes, an ethnic from North Africa with a unique perspective of the world and the environment that is around the human being. 

The gaps had between 30 and 40 Km, crossing all types of different desertic fields. No populations or clue of civilization in the route. Just a few camels, some ancient well, and plenty of dunes. Every 8 Km approx, we found a Pass Control of our organization to charge water and what we had left in the support bag.

On the second and the third day we went across a considerable part of the Erg Chegaga, an inhospitable group of dunes, enormous and magic. The last journey consisted in going through the dry Iriki lake, a totally flat surface of 40 Km in diameter. We started running at night wight a light, going on as the rays of sunlight tinted our heels to our goal: the small city of Foum Zguid.
