Running the Atlas Mountains

In October 2017, I attempted a world-first running expedition to traverse the High Atlas mountains, solo and unsupported. On November 1st, I completed my challenge in 22 days and 860km. The adventure was a wild experience of hostile landscapes, desert heat, Berber hospitality, and overwhelming police encounters…

I’m still processing this major run (and my feet still hurt!), and will endeavor to update this page soon with more details about the adventure. You can read some of the stories on Instagram here, and for now, here’s some snaps from the adventure below.

This run is my second continent in my bigger challenge to run across a mountain range on every continent (I completed a 1000km run across the Tien Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan last year).
