Hello, My name is USA Gazelles
RALLYE AICHA DES GAZELLES
International Off-Road Rally Returns to Morocco for the 21st Year
The Rallye Aicha des Gazelles is the only all-women’s off-road rally raid in the world. The rally is a grueling test of driving skill and navigation across southern Morocco’s most beautiful and challenging terrain. The rally is unique whereby teams are not allowed technological assistance. In the absence of GPS, communications and service crews, teams must find the shortest distance between the checkpoints over nine days of competition with only the aid of traditional navigation – compass, outdated maps, and plotters. The event is an incredible test of endurance, patience, and teamwork, pushing competitors to their limits.
March 19th – April 2nd
*Deadline for registration is February 19th, 2011. Early registration for discounted rates is September 30th, 2010.
