EURAFRICA TRAIL

EL BUEN CAMINANTE NO DEJA HUELLAS…

Make history

The Eurafrica Trail began in October 2014 with a single idea: to create the first cross-country race over two continents around the Strait of Gibraltar. It was a challenge that was as beautiful as it was ambitious. After many adventures, we managed to hold the first intercontinental edition of our race, which finished on 1st November 2016..

 

There, at the closing party in the kasbah of Chefchaouen, it dawned on us what our idea really means: Eurafrica is our chance to make history, to create memories, to unite different cultures through sport and respect for nature, and to raise awareness of our natural and social heritage.

For all of these reasons, Eurafrica Trail is not just a race; it is a comprehensive experience that enables personal stories to unfold in a unique part of the world: Eurafrica Territory.


Eurafrica Territory

The place where it all began

Eurafrica Trail takes place in the Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean (IBRM). This territory is unique for its scenery and peoples. In fact, it is the only reserve of the 631 recognised by UNESCO in the world made up of protected environments on two continents. There are parks and panoramas of great beauty and environmental value such as Los Alcornocales, the Strait, Grazalema and the Sierra de las Nieves on the Spanish side, and Jebel Musa, Talassemtane and Bou Hachem on Moroccan territory.

 

On both sides of the strait (the territory’s natural border), we find many common natural features in the protected natural areas that make up the reserve, such as the “fraternal” Spanish fir woods of the Talassemtane natural park, Sierra de las Nieves and Sierra de Grazalema, and other “fraternal” species like cork trees, holm oaks and different shrub species on both shores. Indeed, the two shores share 75% of their flora. As for the fauna in the IBRM, we can find species such as boars and otters, as well as numerous large birds that live in and cross our territory, such as the Egyptian vulture and the golden eagle.

 

This perfect blend of unity and diversity encourages us to explore and explain Eurafrica Territory from many points of view. From the project’s outset, it has been our intention to put forward different ways of participating and route designs so that the organisers, institutions and participants can enjoy the experiences and places to the full without leaving the territory. So far, in the first two editions of the event we have changed the design of the routes, and it is our intention to continue to do so, including possible changes to the location of the camps in the medium term.

 

Based on successful cases in other places around the world, we understand that hubs can be created that bring together and broaden knowledge between peoples while improving their coexistence. Eurafrica thus has the primordial aims of raising awareness about the Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean, generating opportunities for exchange and dreams among its inhabitants through our race and improving the way they relate to their natural environment: Eurafrica Territory.
