The Race

The MARATHON DES SABLES Peru is more than a race, it’s a unique experience !

It’s a 6 stage trail which allows you to discover Peru along 250 km (155 miles). Runners and walkers alike will discover along its stages, amazing landscapes, and adventures filled with emotions. Relying solely on yourself for food and equipment (these two mandatory) and at whatever speed you choose, everybody can participate in this event.


It goes without saying that the core values on which the MARATHON DES SABLES was carefully built on are exported overseas along with the race: longing for a challenge and adventure, becoming part of something bigger, moving with a herd, self-love and respect for others as well as for the environment. With the Peruvian government’s full-throated support, the MDS PERU goal is to showcase the country and the region’s uniqueness.
