With MDS PERU
Rediscover the original experience that Patrick BAUER had in 1984 when he set off on his own for this first 350-km crossing of the desert in self-sufficiency conditions.
Discover the New World: South America, this mysterious continent that attracted so much lust; and more precisely, Peru, the outdoor sports country par excellence.
Test your limits –both physical and mental– with these 6 stages totalling 250 km (155 mi).
Walk or run in the footsteps of the Chaskis, those Inca messengers capable of running hundreds of miles to deliver their missives.
Forget about comfort –during 7 days, you'll be living in self-sufficiency conditions– and you'll rediscover what is buried deep within yourself.
Immerse yourself in the raw beauty, rather the raw beauties, of the Ica Desert and the Pacific Ocean.
Share your adventure with other competitors who will be participating for exactly the same reasons as you: the challenge; the natural environment; solidarity; rediscovering themselves.
Experience the beauty, power and austerity of the Ica Desert, which will leave you breathless with the impression of power it emanates.
Take advantage of the MDS expertise to enjoy a safe, high-quality adventure, with the full support of the Peruvian authorities: we can guarantee you'll come back home bewitched.
Live a simple life between desert and ocean; between sand and saltwater; between the immobility and silence of the dunes and the constant movement and backwash of the sea.
Progress at your own pace: just like MDS MAROC, the MDS PERU is open to walkers and runners alike, thus enabling every participant to fully express his or her own desires and capabilities.
Don't miss your chance: be part of this first edition!
