Amazigh

In search of the essence of triathlon, the XTRI family is growing and we are very proud to be able to offer this stunning course in Morocco. The AMAZIGH Xtri is a point to point full distance extreme triathlon starting in the city of Ouarzazate, also known as "The Door of the Desert" in the Barrage El Mansour Eddahbi, leading over the gorgeous town of Telouet and riding through the High Atlas mountains along the Tizi n'Tichka, the highest mountain pass in Morocco at an elevation of 2.260m (7,410ft). Lastly, a full marathon around the heart of Morocco's hidden gem, the Ksar Ait Ben Haddou, one of Morocco's most impressive historical landmarks and a popular film location for Hollywood movies.

Take part of the ultimate test of endurance, grit, sportsmanship and friendly extreme triathlon through some of the most amazing landscapes in the South of Morocco.

The Amazigh Xtreme Triathlon is an Xtri World Tour Prospect Race.

Impressions

I just enjoy doing the race so much! I’m the most happy when I’m 2-3 hours into the cycle. Then I am just so happy! I'm always singing out loud and I ruin my race, because I push too hard.

I enjoy most the whole journey, which has its long festive day, where I can push myself a bit further with my team and all of this in astonishing surroundings.

Mikko Lehmuskoski, FI

Surroundings, friendship between teams and your team pushing you forward. Awesome feeling.

That an xtri is not only with you on race day but from the moment you have an inkling it might be for you and then for the rest of the day. And I loved the soup on Gaustatoppen.
