- The 2021 edition will be held from 10-15 October, with the same format as previously announced.
- An increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in Morocco has forced the postponement of the event.
The sixteenth edition of the Titan Desert will finally take place between 10-15 October 2021. A rise in the number of Covid-19 cases in Morocco, due to the British and South African strains of the virus, has obliged us to take this decision.
After recent conversations with the Government of Morocco and in the light of the measures taken in the African country such as the extension of the State of Alarm, the organization has decided to postpone the event, which would have taken place from 23-28 May this year.
Despite the change to October, the Titan Desert will have the same format and route planned for May, with a total of 640 kilometres and an elevation gain of 7,600+ metres over the 6 stages.
The 500+ participants who signed up for this edition will keep their race number (bib) for the new dates. However, thanks to the ‘Covid Guarantee’ they can request a refund of their entry fee if the new dates are not convenient for them.
The Titan Desert is a mountain bike race that has been held since 2006 in the desert of Morocco. Organized by Titan World Series (RPM-MKTG and ASO), the race returns this year to its country of origin after passing through Almería in 2020, due to the pandemic.
