April 2018 Events in Marrakech

With its glorious late-spring climate, April sees ever increasing temperatures, up to 10 hours of sunshine each day, very little rain and spectacular displays of bougainvillea, hibiscus and other flowering shrubs in full bloom across the city. As tourist numbers to the Pink City continue to rise, there are a number of noteworthy April 2018 Events in Marrakech to schedule into one’s visiting plans.

April 2018 Events in Marrakech

This month's main event kicks off with the celebrated Marathon des Sables, scheduled to take place between 6th and 16th April 2018. Attracting long-distance athletes from around the world, this 33rd running of this gruelling 250 km race through the Sahara desert has become one of the biggest events in the Moroccan sporting calendar.  

Other events to consider during your visit include the WTCC (World Touring Car Championship) Marrakech, which takes place on 7th/8th April, and the Marrakech Atlas Etape. Scheduled for the 22nd April 2018, this charity bike ride challenges serous amateurs and professional riders over three different routes (60 km, 104 km and 140 km) catering for all levels of proficiency.

What to Do in April

Also of interest to those into 'outdoor adventures', April is a good time to take a trip into the Atlas Mountains to discover some of their lush valleys against a backdrop of soaring peaks, still snow-capped early in the month, and breath-taking waterfalls as well as Portuguese fortresses, ancient Berber villages and much more.
