Marrakech Atlas Etape is an annual cyclosportive starting from the exotic city of Marrakech in Morocco up to the ski-resort high in the Atlas Mountains and back down again. It is an inclusive event with no aggressive broom wagon and a choice of two routes: 156km and 76km. The full ascent will challenge the serious amateur or even professional rider, as well as passionate and determined cyclists who just wants to do this monster of a climb with the exhilaration of the descent.
Marrakech Atlas Etape is organised for the benefit of Education For All, a Moroccan NGO. At present, few girls from rural communities in Morocco continue their education after primary school. College is not accessible to them for several reasons. To help tackle some of the issues, EFA are running boarding houses near secondary colleges, allowing some girls from rural families to continue their education.
