We Ran…Marrakech Half Marathon

March 20, 2017
The Race!
Marrakech Half Marathon

 

Who We Ran With…
Our own (this wasn’t an official race)

 

Where’d We Go?
We stayed at the beautiful Azaren and headed out into the foot hills.

 

How Far Did We Go?
13.1miles

 

Plodded Upon…
Roads and dirt roads

 

We LOVED…
Everything! The camels, sheep, mountains, locals…

 

We Struggled…
The first 2miles were on the road and the traffic can become a little too close for comfort. A little terrifying when you’re only 5ft3! As with every race the final 2 or 3 kilometres were kind of ‘grit your teeth and go for it’.

 

Why This Race…
As this is not an organised event, it’s not one for the faint hearted. It’s for the adventure seeker, and hill climb lover. You leave the road and head out into tiny foot hill villages, amongst the shadows of the stunning Atlas mountains.It really is the ultimate run candy for the avid trail runner!

 

Famous Faces…
Umm does a camel count?

 

Mid Run Brainwave…
This is what challenge is all about. Oooh and I hope there’s pancakes for breakfast.

 

Rocket Fuel…
Pre-run overnight oats with honey
Water!

 

Number 1 Fan…
Hannah Luck! What a superstar! 6 months pregnant and she joined us for the first and last 2 miles.

 

What Did We Wear…
Bra – Sweaty Betty
Top – Sweaty Betty
Shorts – Sweaty Betty
Shoes – Adidas
Backpack – Sweaty Betty
