16 – 20 MAY  |  DAHKLA  |  SAHARA desert

open to members & non-members

Go further than you ever imagined with our Challenge Escape. The focus of this retreat is an awe-inspiring journey in the Sahara Desert, completed on foot and bike. This is high demand and high reward.

Get ready by feeding mind as well as body with a welcoming cultural day, spent discovering the delights of Marrakech’s souks and medina. You’ll spend the first half of your stay in the Moroccan desert training and getting to know your fellow Challengers, with drills in the sand, a training run and a movement class. Then it’s time for the main event.

Starting early to avoid the heat of the day, you’ll undertake a 15km run and 25km bike ride, followed by lunch, a recovery session and a bonfire party to celebrate your achievements. Next you will replenish with a wellness day of restorative yoga and deep tissue massage. In this packed schedule we’ll also find time for an introduction to kite surfing, several Third Space workouts and a trip to the sand dunes. 

You will return home tired but happy, having pushed yourself to the limits, made friends for life, and increased your strength, resilience and confidence.
