Nationale-Nederlanden San Silvestre Vallecana

Given the impossibility of performing the Sahara Marathon in person and with the assistance of runners from all over the world, the organization of the solidarity race has launched a very special edition with a virtual event. Runners and supporters of the Saharawi cause will be able to participate in the prestigious race through a digital APP that will be available once the registration is made (€ 15) and that will allow the athletes to run from anywhere in the world.

The Western Sahara needs us like never before. At a time when Covid19 has hit the whole world, the Saharawi camps in Tindouf are experiencing an extremely complicated situation in which their precarious living conditions are compounded by the impact of the pandemic and the consequences of the war conflict that has resumed after thirty years of ceasefire.


Pista de hielo Javier FernándezParticipants will be able to carry out their race during the last week of February. They will be able to choose the most appropriate distance (5, 10, 21 or 42 km) and even run in various distances or repeat the race throughout the week (the best time will be validated). The application also invites runners to upload their videos and messages of solidarity with the Western Sahara to their social networks.

EventestThe Sahara Marathon is a solidary race organized by the Saharawi Ministry of Youth and Sports and a group of volunteers from different countries. During the last twenty years, the race in the desert has served as a platform to denounce the unjust situation that exists in Western Sahara and to tackle countless solidarity projects in the refugee camps. Thousands of runners from all continents have traveled during this time to the Algerian desert to live the experience provided by this race and to bond with refugee families. In this unique edition of 2021, the objectives of the event remain, although the experience will be different.

Whether you are going to participate in the virtual race or not, you can collaborate with the Sahara Marathon 2021 humanitarian project with the acquisition of the solidarity pack that includes: 
*Official Sahara Marathon 2021 T-shirt
*Tubular  scarf
*Book 42 Km=42 Years
*Race bib number

All this for 25 € (shipping included to Spain- € 10 to other countries)



Clásica MTB de ValdemorilloThe money raised through the Sahara Marathon 2021 Solidarity Project will go to the purchase and distribution of basic food baskets for the most needy families in the Saharawi Camps of Tindouf. The acquisition of food and the distribution will be managed locally to favor the generation of business and employment in the camps. The higher the fundraising is, the more families will receive the aid.
