Ultra Trail Atlas Toubkal, 2 Oct 2014
In the past 5 years I tryed to do the UTAT, at least 2 times, but for some reason (injury, family, etc) I was never able to do it.
2014 was finally the year.
 
I've been into the Atlas mountain 2 times before, one time do to some trekking and the 2nd time to do some rock climbing. These mountains are simply beautiful. What I love the most is the coulour of the sand/dirt: it's red... and the smell is also amazing.
And the people that live there, the Berberes, are such a nice, welcome and friendly people.
 
Talking a bit about the race:
I knew that this trail would be very very hard by several reasons:
- the altitude, we had to go up to 3600m
- the fact that the paths are very very technical and very rocky
- also the fact that we have to carry some more extra weight due to the water and food
- and this year, we were expected to have a lot of wind.
