The ULTRA TRAIL ATLAS TOUBKAL course is 105 kms long, with 8000 meters of elevation gain.
The race starts (and finish) in Oukaïmeden, at an altitude of 2 620. The course runs between the altitudes of 1700 and 3700 meters.
The race requires a high level of autonomy, and the paths are technical. A stretch of the race, from km 40 to 80, runs through one of the most remote and isolated parts of the High Atlas, with no roads and no GSM coverage.
There are some 20 checkpoints on the course, the most important ones include medical assistance.
