LSESU RAG Morocco Trek 2015 (Participants)

So you've signed up to join the LSESU RAG Morocco Trek 2015?

Well done! Now here comes the fun part!

This page is for all of us to plan events, pitch ideas, set up training sessions (to build our stamina for next year!) and basically just keep each other updated on our individual progress and on our progress as a group :)



About the trek:
Here is another item to check off your bucket list while supporting a good cause.

For those who have a passion for travelling and enjoy the outdoors, trekking in Morocco could be the next challenge for you. A trek put together by Worldwide Cancer Research and Choose A Challenge, you’ll be able to experience one of nature’s greatest gifts while contributing to making a significant contribution to the best cancer research projects worldwide.

In August 2015, participants will be on their way to a 5-day hike in a land of incredible history and culture with a unique mix of Berber, Arab and European influences, followed by 8 days to explore Morocco. Perched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sahara Desert in the far northwestern corner of Africa, Morocco captures the spirit of the region; with the smell of incense in the narrow labyrinths of the ancient souks in the cities, verdant Berber oases and the rolling golden dunes of the Sahara. Our journey through the High Atlas is a great chance to explore the rocky gorges and high altitude settlements that have populated this area for centuries.

In return for this chance of a lifetime challenge, you will be set a minimum fundraising target of £1,200. All proceeds will go to Worldwide Cancer Research.
