One week of adventure, to discover the most beautiful deserts of the world.
The HMDS concept
A week out of time, in the most beautiful places in the world. 4 days of adventure in the middle of the desert, a route divided into 3 stages, to be done by running and walking. This is the adventure of a lifetime!
In 2022, thanks to the HMDS adventure, discover two new deserts: the Sahara in Morocco and Wadi Rum in Jordan. These two new exceptional destinations join the original HMDS events: Fuerteventura and Peru.
- 3 distances to choose from (depending on the destination): 70, 100 or 120km
- Possibility to run or walk on both distances
- Wide time barriers: 3.5km/h minimum speed allowed
- Average speed at the HMDS: 5.5km/h
During the HMDS adventure, you will spend your nights in the heart of the desert, on the HMDS bivouac.
Organised in groups of 6 tents, the HMDS bivouac is the place where you will eat, rest and, above all, exchange and share with the other participants.
The organisation will provide you with an individual tent.
The organization takes care of the water supply. It will be distributed in the evening, at the refreshment stations during the stages and at each arrival in sufficient quantities.
As the HMDS is an adventure on which you will be food self-sufficient, you will need to bring and carry your own personal food for the 4 days.
It is up to you to choose freeze-dried dishes, snacks, compotes, soups, cereal bars, gels or other energy sources.
You will need to bring a backpack, technical running gear, light clothing for the mornings and evenings at the bivouac, as well as night, hygiene and cooking equipment.
