The concept of the HMDS Fuerteventura combines race and hotel accommodation. The offers are different by the hotel accommodation option. Otherwise, during the 4 days of the race, the adventure is the same for everyone.
With each offer, it is included:
In case of doubt as the adventure approaches, you can postpone your participation free of charge to the next edition, up to 30 days before departure, without giving any justification.
If, in spite of your training and preparation, you don't make it to the end, we invite you on the next edition, on the same offer (excluding plane ticket, material and other options).
In case of cancellation of the event by the organisation, you will be refunded 100% of the amount you paid within 60 days.
The organisation of the HALF MARATHON DES SABLES has done its best to ensure that the event takes place in the best possible conditions, and that participants who sign up do not take any risk with adjusted cancellation and postponement conditions.
The HMDS is 7 days in total: a first night in a hotel before the departure of the adventure, 3 nights in the desert, then 3 nights in a hotel. Depending the offer you choose, participants will stay in one of our partner hotels, Playitas Resort or La Pared, located 35 minutes away from each other.
The Playitas Resort hotel is located in the southeast of the island of Fuerteventura. It has many sports facilities, making it the most sporty hotel of Europe!
The La Pared Hotel, in a more intimate style, is located on the west side of the island. It has direct access to La Pared beach, which is both one of the best surfing spots in Fuerteventura and one of the best places on the island to watch the sunset.
Whether you stay at Playitas or La Pared, you have access to the facilities of both hotels, with half board (breakfast and buffet dinner included). Those staying at La Pared who wish to visit Playitas sports facilities will be able to do so on Friday or Saturday after the race thanks to the free shuttles provided by the organization.
The Gala evening, which takes place on Thursday, is organized at Playitas. All participants staying at La Pared will have access to a shuttle service, before and after the event, to travel between the two hotels.
