4x4 Trek - Trek Elles Marchent 2019

A trek in the desert, 4 for a heart!

 

Trek Elles Marchent is an orientation trek, 100% feminine for the association Défi du Cœur (Heart Challenge) created in 2016.

The Trek is for women with a good physical condition but as it's character that will get them through they will have to be persistent and strong willed as well.

 

In teams of 4 the women will hike through the Moroccan desert on 4 different courses. The goal is to find the check points scattered across the desert, using a map and compass. SatNavs are forbidden. Each stage is between 20 and 25 km long.

Euro4x4parts has a team of courageous women who will be joining the other teams up for the challenge. It's a real pleasure for us to follow them for the 3rd edition, from March the 8th to the 15th, in Errachidia, Morocco!

Congratulations to our "trekkers" !

Our team 4Forever finished 2nd ! Well done girls!

A word from the team:

"What a challenge!

We finish 2nd in this super adventure for 4!

We were determined and worked together as a team to complete the 120 km of dunes, rocks, mountains, sandstorm and intense heat! What an adventure !

We proudly sported the Euro4x4parts colours !!

We feel happy and fulfilled with what we have achieved! "

How does it work?

After a one-day navigation course (obligatory for new participants), the participants are ready to hit the desert.

Every day the course is between 20 to 25 km with check points to find. At each check point there's an envelope containing a cultural question on Morocco or a challenge.

Each team will have to give their answers within the allotted time. Each correct answer or challenge gains the teams extra points.

The winning team will be the one with the most points.

The association

Each year, the association Défi du Cœur dedicates a day to charity work.

The 3rd edition is for a mobile school for children who don't have access to education. The mobile school is a long-term solution to the problem.
