Maryline, an elite trail runner with an impressive track record (French champion ultra-trail, World Team Champion, 1st Ecotrail 2019…), came the first time to UTAT in 2019. She won the Challenge de l’Atlas, discovering the Atlas range and the local culture, amazed by the wonders of the territory.

The relationship between Maryline and the UTAT team naturally developed, and she became our ambassador to the elite runners.

Maryline works with the organization to welcome the top runners in the best possible conditions and is their main contact to facilitate their participation and preparation to come and discover all the race and the Atlas range has to offer.

Paulo is our UTAT ambassador in Portugal.

He is the perfect contact for Portuguese-speaking racers and media.

Paolo’s efficiency is such, that for 2 years, Portugal was the second nation in numbers amongst the participants at the UTAT!

He has taken part in all the different races – Challenge de l’Atlas, Virée d’Iskiss,… He knows every single stone on the paths. His love for Morocco and the Atlas range knows no boundaries, the result is that most of the Portuguese racers ask him to add options to their stay. It’s actually thanks to him that we have added an option with an ascent of the Toubkal ( 4 167 m) in our offer.

Like Olivier in Germany, the UTAT has no secrets for him!

Thanks to his work and his excellent network the event has a very good reputation in Portugal,

Paulo, thanks to your efforts we now welcome your friendly and smiling compatriots at the UTAT base camp!

Please do not hesitate to contact Paulo for everything concerning the race and the territory: paulo.utat@atlas-trail.com
