The Atlas Hope Ultra is also a fundraising challenge where runners and participants fundraise to support local communities affected by the 2023 earthquake in the Atlas Mountains.

As a runner during our special 7-day event, you'll connect with the communities you've supported and take on the 60KM Ultra, which will take place on Day 4.

Runners will fundraise directly through our partner, The High Atlas Foundation, a globally- recognized  & award-winning Moroccan association and US non-profit, playing a vital role in earthquake- response and community development throughout Morocco and the Atlas.

Fundraising is transparently and openly facilitated on the High Atlas Foundation's
website.

Our Story

Atlas Hope was born from the desire to use Ultra running to ignite fundraising campaigns worldwide, designed to act as a collective force that uplifts disadvantaged communities. 

Morocco lacks impactful charity-based endurance events.

Our Ultra event will raise substantial funding to support underprivileged and affected Moroccan communities.
