Participant:
Why is there a limited number of spots?

We limit the number of available spots to race for a number of reasons. 1) To keep the race exclusive and small to enhance the overall experience. 2) To keep the race from impacting local traffic and disrupting business and tourism in Ouarzazate. 3) To keep the race safer. Less athletes means an easier to manage field with more space between athletes. 4) To keep consistent with the real identity of the race. To stay in touch with the grass roots of the sport.

SUPPORT TEAM
Participant:
Why am I required to have my own support crew?
Support:
The Amazigh Xtreme Triathlon is a remote race that is extreme and very, very difficult. Not only is a support crew necessary to help ensure your safety and success, but it's also essential to truly enjoy the adventure, beauty, and overall accomplishment of the athlete. A race like this, in a place like this, is best enjoyed with a friend and/or family member.
Participant:
Am I required to have a support crew, or can I get away with doing it myself?
Support:
You MUST have at least one person on your support crew. You will not be allowed to race without at least one person there to help you during the race. You will need it. It is for your safety and enjoyment.
Participant:
How many support crew members and vehicles can I have?
Support:
Each athlete is required to have at least one support crew member (the Captain) and at most one support team vehicle. You can have more than one member to your crew, but we will only provide one team shirt and wristband for entrance and exit by your team member to the swim exit, T1, and T2. The shirt must be worn by the support member that is helping you in those three areas. The wristband must be worn by the support member that is running with you on the mandatory (and non mandatory) area(s) of the course. Each team is only permitted to have one vehicle. This is for congestion and safety reasons. The course is tight (especially on the bike and sections of the run). Too many cars parked on the side of the road is dangerous for the athletes, support teams, and other travelers.
