Not to be confused with the Marathon des Sables in Morocco, the Sahara Marathon has been taking place in the Saharawi refugee camps in southwest Algeria every February since 2001. The COVID-19 pandemic interrupted this annual solidarity sports event for 3 years, but we are happy to announce that the race was held in 2023 and was a huge success with runners and supporters traveling from all over the world to participate! Runners have the choice of joining the 42km, 21km, 10km, 0r 5km races, in support of projects benefitting the Saharawi children living in the refugee camps.
