People have a tendency to look at me sideways when I told them I went on a “running expedition” to Morocco. And honestly, I thought I might have been crazy, too. But this was without a doubt the BEST vacation. From the guides, to the accommodations, to the chefs, to the scenery, this was an incredible way to be immersed in another culture & really get to relax (yes...relax while running!) & see the countryside. From the High Atlas Mountains to the coast, we got to explore some of the most authentic parts of Morocco, and we’ve made life-long friends to boot!

Off the beaten track: Rogue Expeditions is heading to Morocco to run and explore the snow-capped High Atlas mountains, the high desert of the Anti-Atlas and the breezy blue coastline of this beautiful and welcoming country.

You’ll explore the high-altitude trails of Imlil, run through dramatic mountain passes, test your bargaining skills in the souks, witness magical high desert sunsets, soak in laid back beach town vibes, and be transported to another world beneath thousands of of swaying palm trees in the oases.

Every day presents a brand new landscape and a brand new run, and multiple distance options are always available to ensure that you never have to run more or less than desired. Every detail is taken care of, from the wonderful meals featuring local cuisine and unique guesthouses to the route selection and sightseeing stops, and the small group set up ensures an authentic, intimate experience where great new friendships are quickly forged and memories made that will last a lifetime.

There will be a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 16 runners. Spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so early deposits are recommended!

Participants will need a passport with at least 6 months of validity left. No visas or vaccinations are required for US or EU citizens in Morocco, though you may want to consider some standard vaccinations if you are a first-time traveler. Travelers from other countries should check with their consulate for details. Please keep in mind that Morocco is a developing country – though you will be comfortable and very well taken care of, an adventurous and flexible attitude is a must!

Please note that travel insurance is strongly recommended. Although we hope you never need it, we've seen enough to know that it can be a lifesaver in the event of a medical emergency, flight delays that cause you to miss the start of the trip, lost baggage or cancellation on your part (broke your leg two weeks before departure? Insurance could cover the entire cost of your trip!). 

You can find those here.
