Emily Miller and Wendy Fisher are gearing up for a second return to the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles. The event takes place across the southern portion of Morocco in some of the country’s most beautiful and challenging terrain. The race officially starts in Sete, France this Saturday, March 13th. The Prologue stage takes place outside Erfoud, Morocco on March 17th and the competition ends with the ceremonial finish in Essaouira, Morocco on March 27th.
