The course

The Mauritanian Race 2003 is a non-stop foot race of 200 km at your own pace with control points (CP) at 20km intervals. The time limit for completion is 100 hours. The runners are provided with water at each control point, but are responsible for their own food, which the organization carries to the specified control points. The departure and arrival of the race are from the Ilij Oued, which is situated in the little village of Azougi, 6km from Atar. Round course 200km. This part of the country boasts extremely varied scenery, a combination of rocky plateaus and deep ravines (dhars and guelbs), chains of little dunettes and stony patches (ergs and regs), palm groves, villages and encampments, life postings and blazed trials from ancient caravans.

Why choose Mauritania ?
The Mauritanian desert is a true desert where, ?one can listen to the hours falling into eternity ? and where one enters into this world as if into a sacred place. For those who cross this hostile environment, there is first of all the overpowering silence followed by profound meditation. And then there is also the quasi-unreal natural beauty of the desert, the feeling of total liberty and escape which comes from spending days and nights out of time, where man gives up on the never-ending horizon before him and aims instead towards the sky. A native Mauritanian reminds with humor that ?if life under a tent leads to a civilization of people lying down, the desert itself recalls verticality?.
The desert exists, it seems for man to find his soul?

?One must always be aware of the limitations of possibility, not so as to give up, but to attempt the impossible under the best possible conditions??
