THE BIVOUAC IS ON THE MOVE!

camouv-ELA-2014-ETAPE2-COPY-19 bassedefThere was a warm atmosphere in the bivouac this Wednesday morning in the SULTAN MARATHON DES SABLES, a few minutes before the start of the long stage. After spotting a Japanese runner dancing to “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson in the midst of his tent pals on Tuesday, this time we heard vest number 666, disguised as the devil, break into a cappella opera. But that’s not all! A number of competitors and volunteers also sang and danced with delight in front of the camera to the now legendary Farrell Williams song “Happy”. The film clip will shortly be uploaded to the SULTAN MARATHON DES SABLES site. A fine way to participate in the phenomenon, which has been spreading across the worldwide web for several months.

INDISPENSIBLE MOROCCANS

indispensablemarocain-VAL-2014-Etape4-Jour2-copy-30 bassedefThere are over 200 Moroccans involved in the organisation team for the Marathon des Sables. The event would be impossible without the work carried out by the Moroccans. 70 chauffeurs, around forty guys to take down and pitch the tents and over 70 soldiers to transport all the logistics. “The Marathon des Sables is very precious for us, Mabrouk explains, who’s been in the race for nearly 20 editions and is in charge of the chauffeurs. In addition to enabling us to work, there is a lot of respect for our country. When we leave the bivouac, not even a cigarette butt remains.”
