2024 : destination Sahara!

25.12.2022 - The Sun Trip
The Sun Trip The Sun Trip

After several months of reflection we confirm the idea to organize in 2024 the 5th edition of The Sun Trip (original format), in round trip between France and Morocco!

The Sun Trip – Destination Sahara” It will be a loop of about 7000 km to go to the first sand dunes of the Sahara, in the south of Morocco. Between the checkpoints we will find the idea of a free route and the adventurers will not benefit from any assistance.


Registration

We will open registration with two categories:

  • Racers: for adventurers who can ride more than 200 km per day and who want to do the Sun Trip solar race.
  • The “baroudeurs” : for those who will follow a rhythm closer to 150km per day and who will be able to find each other at the different checkpoints.

A selection will be made based on experience on the Sun Trip (international or regional editions), but also on analysis of personal performance tests sent during 2023. The list of participants will be finalized by the beginning of 2024.

A technical regulation will soon be submitted, based on the current one. An adventure regulation will be established by the summer of 2023.
