ORGANISING THE 2021 EDITION IN THE CURRENT SANITARY SITUATION

First of all, we would like to thank all of you who continue to support the UTAT by your registration/pre-registration to the 2021 edition – THANK YOU!

On our side we are doing everything we can to prepare and make possible an event in October this year. On this page, as well as via our Newsletter and on social media we will regularly update you on the situation, dead-lines, payment procedures, etc.

Look forward to seeing you in Oukaïmeden in October!

Current situation

June 15, 2021

Today we remain confident that the 12th edition can be held from October 7 to 11, 2021.

Why?

  • The sanitary conditions in Europe and in Morocco to date, are increasingly encouraging.
  • We pursue our contacts with the Moroccan authorities concerned who remain positive and constructive.
  • The number of registered and pre-registered racers is sufficient to organize a race in 2021.

COVID SITUATION IN MOROCCO JUNE 15th

The number of Covid cases in Morocco is low (significantly lower than in most European countries) and vaccination is progressing.

CONDITIONS FOR TRAVEL FROM EUROPE TO MOROCCO JUNE 15th

The current schedule foresees an opening for tourism in Morocco starting July 7th. Today the EU classifies Morocco as an orange country, which implies that vaccinated persons must also provide a negative PCR test of less than 72 hrs or an antigenic test of less than 48 hrs.

SANITARY PROTOCOL FOR THE EVENT JUNE 15th

We continue our discussions with the Moroccan authorities governing the conduct of sporting events, aiming towards a firm knowledge regarding the sanitary protocols that will be applicable in October

CONDITIONS ACCORDING THE EVOLUTION OF THE HEALTH CRISIS

Based on our experience and those of our Moroccan suppliers, further to the cancellation of the event in 2020, we have managed to postpone all down payments regarding logistics and production of the event until September 1st.

This makes it possible for us to offer the following cancellation conditions, if the sanitary conditions no longer permit us to organize the UTAT in October 2021:

  • Decision taken before August 31st : all those who have paid in 2021 will be fully refunded.
  • Decision taken between September 1st and 15th: a refund of 80% of the registration fee for those who have paid in 2021, or the possibility to transfer the registration to 2022.
  • Cancellation due to the Covid situation and its consequences taken after September 1st : transfer of the registration to 2022, no refund possible.
