Nestled between the mountains and the sea, Dakhla and its magnificent landscapes attract thousands of tourists each year thanks to the exceptional natural setting and unsurpassed beaches. This is the place the Sahraouiya picks to organize the third edition of its all-women's solidarity endurance competition.
The Sahraouiya is a sporting event that unites women athletes from various countries. For the third edition, the competitors had to complete challenges involving bicycling, running, canoeing, orienteering, night running and more as part of a grueling athletic gauntlet. The competition requires deftness, strategy and respect for others, as each athlete receives merits and demerits based on her behavior.
The Sahraouiya is also a draw for tourists from all over the world, who come to soak up the beauty of the region and practice kite-surfing, windsurfing or scuba diving in the brilliant waters of the Atlantic, while also supporting a sporting event that benefits charity work.
