THE ROUTE FOR THE FULL RACE CATEGORY

This years full race route will take you through spectacular and very varied landscapes. From the rocky Atlas Mountains in Morocco, that will require your full concentration and coordinating skills. Through the breathtaking dunes of the Mauritanian Sahara desert that will surely challenge your digging capabilities. And finishing on the wide beaches of Dakar, Senegal. Once again, we are offering you the option of a pre-start in Paris on January 21st, giving you the chance to go all the way from Paris to Dakar. 

We promise you that the route will test both your driving skills, your endurance and your navigational skills. The Real Way to Dakar uses gps for navigation which means that you will have to find your own way through the terrain, using the coordinates that is provided every day.

THE ROUTES FOR THE LITE RACE CATEGORY

In 2021 we have decided to test a new option for the lite route. This means that as a participant in the lite category, you have the option of doing the Lite 1 route that starts in Mahirija, Morocco and ends in Dakhla, Morocco or the Lite 2 route that starts in Dakhla, Morocco and ends in Dakar, Senegal.

The Lite 1 route will take you through the rough landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and will test your driving abilities in rocky terrain along with some driving in the Moroccan sand dunes.

The Lite 2 route will take you through the largest sandbox we can find and give you a chance to test your driving skills in burning heat and treacherous sand.
