Ever wondered what it’s like to see Morocco from the perspective of a small child on a miniature motorbike? Probably not, but Monkey Run Morocco allows you to see this incredible country from more than one new angle...

How do you fancy a free place on the Monkey Run?

The Monkey Run is the perfect combination of stupidity and adventuring genius, we couldn't exactly give away a spot in the normal way now could we? So instead, we're going to give it away in the most stupid way we could think of.

Four monkeys (adults in monkey costumes in case you were worried about animal welfare) will race on monkey bikes in a time trial that will air live on our Facebook Page at 13:00 GMT on 18th September 2018. All you have to do is decide which monkey you think will win. 

Naturally, the course will be littered with obstacles and we will likely be throwing stuff at the competing monkeys. Needless to say, it'll be an entertaining watch, especially if you have a vested interest in a monkey doing well.

Then, all those who picked the winning monkey will have their names printed on a big board where our winning primate will hurl his or her sh*t. The name with the most poo on, wins. Told you it was stupid.

More details on the competition can be found here - http://www.theadventurists.com/the-competition/

Organised by The Adventurists (the people behind some of the world’s most exciting adventures including the Mongol Derby, the world’s longest horse race across Mongolia, and The Icarus Trophy, a long distance paramotor race in the skies above southern Africa), the Moroccan Monkey Run is named after the small motorbikes on which the trip is based.

The beauty of using these bikes not only means that there’s no need for a full motorbike license to feel the rush of desert air through your hair, but that huge swathes of the country are opened up to that you’d not otherwise see - you can ride off-road tracks and trails without worrying about having too far to fall if you hit a bump or branch and the bikes are small enough to squeeze down the narrowest of Marrakesh’s streets.

It’s not just the mode of transport that makes this journey, which runs from the Sahara Desert to Marrakesh, via the Atlas Mountains, so unique but also the way the organizers run it.

Instead of giving you strict instructions on where you need to be and when, they drop you off at a secret location near Merzouga, a small Moroccan town in the Sahara Desert near the Algerian border, with your bike and encourage you to get lost!“We believe the world is far too safe and organized, that we've come to live in ever decreasing circles of freedom. Fear of litigation, greed and a spineless refusal to take responsibility for ourselves have robbed us of one of the most interesting things in life: the unexpected.
