Figuig is a palm grove town in a desert area surrounded by small mountains where about 12,000 people live in the far east of Morocco. A true lost oasis on the border with Algeria. This small town is not lacking in charm and between its oasis of 200,000 palm/date trees and the seven ksour traditional ‘fortresses’ that surround it, it has an unknown wealth.
Mr Boulam Gudda, as the president of the Figuig Marathon Association and race director of the 10km Figuig International, tries to publicise this heritage and the tourist sites of the community of the Figuig region. Encouraging sport is one way to achieve this, taking advantage of the potential of its youth at the 10km Figuig International race’. The race has already had significant success and great participation of national and international professional athletes and race fans from different cities of Morocco.
