100km del Sahara

  1. What documents do I need for travelling ?
    For Tunisia no visa is required, only a valid passport.
  2. Do I need vaccinations ?
    No vaccination is required.
  3. What is Tunisian currency, do I need money during the race ?
    Tunisian currency is Dinar. 1 Euro = 3 Dinars approx. During the race you don’t need any money, only before and after it for personal shopping.
  4. Is own phone SIM card working ?
    Own SIM works but tariffs can be expensive. better to buy a cheap local SIM.
  1. How’s the flight schedule?
    Departure on Friday 30 April 2021, back on Tuesday 4 May 2021.
  2. How transfers are organized ?
    Transfers are by bus. Time is approx. 4 hours Djerba-Ksar Ghilane, same for Douz-Djerba.
  1. How acommodations are arranged ?
    3 noches en hotel **** y 1 noche en un campamento permanente en Ksar Ghilane.
  1. How’s the weather ?
    Usual desert weather offers a dry, warm climate, with hot sun and clouds. Unusual random weather situations can be expected though and some very windy day.
  2. How are temperatures ?
    During the race period, day temperatures can range between 25°C and 28°C, reaching up to 30°C-35°C during the hottest hours. Night temperatures are lower, but never really cold, approx. 15°C-20°C.
  3. What time zone are we in ?
  4. How’s Sahara running terrain ?
    In the so called ERG areas you’ll find sand dunes. The remaining terrain, where’s easier to run, is hard and compact, as well as are the pistes that can be covered in sand in some sections.
  5. Are there animals in Sahara?
    It’s possible to meet dromedaries and some goats. There are also desert foxes, gazelles and scorpions, but much less easily spotted.
  1. How’s race terrain ?
    The itinerary develops on typical desert surfaces: sand dunes, hard surfaced pistes with random sand tongues.
  1. What is the compulsory equipment ? At least 1 liter of water (in bottles or camelbak reservoirs), mineral salts, aluminium blanket, whistle, lighter, headlamp. Highly reccomended: sun hat, sun glasses, high-protection sunscreen, small knife and Compeed plasters.
    The compulsory equipment can be checked at any moment by the organization and any missing item will produce a penalty to the runner.
  2. How’s the race itinerary marked ?
    Arrows plates, ribbons and hi-visibility flags, some of them Zitoway branded.
  3. How do I manage litter during the run ?
    Zitoway Sport & Adventure is very strict about environmental protection. Therefore – as per our rules and regulations that every participant must sign – littering along the itinerary it’s strictly forbidden. Garbage must be carried in own pack or waist bag until it can be disposed at the waterpoints or at the camp.
  4. What can I find at the waterpoints?
    Water, tea, fruits, dates, biscuits.
  5. Is GPS useful ?
    Zitoway Sport & Adventure doesn’t provide any GPS tracks. GPS is not necessary for orienteering during the race, being the stages completely marked by the organization and monitored by our vehicles. So said, GPS can be useful to pace yourself or for personal record purposes.
  6. Is there phone coverage along the itinerary ?
    Phone coverage is pretty much irregular, so full connection is not granted.
  7. Is a medical certificate necessary ?
    For foreign runners is not compulsory, but given the location and the climate, a serious pre-race check-up is highly reccomended.
  8. Is a proper insurance coverage necessary ?
    An extension of the basic insurance provided by the organization is highly reccomended.
  9. Is Zitoway staff monitoring the race itinerary ?
    Yes. Zitoway Sport & Adventure organization’s main feature is exactly to offer the chance to enjoy a desert run in perfect safety. That’s why the itinerary is constantly patrolled by organization’s 4×4 cars and quads, including of course  medical assistance ones, from the start to the finish line.
  10. Can I listen to music with earphones during 100km del Sahara?
  1. What kind of shoes do I have to choose?
    The terrain is pretty variated. We suggest trail running shoes with a solid construction. Buying a size bigger than usual is reccomended, since feet tent to swell due to high temperatures. Shoes must be used and tested before the race.
  2. Which socks are reccomended ?
    Socks with separate toes have proved to be pretty good for preventing blisters.
  3. Do I need gaiters ?
    Gaiters are advisable to prevent sand and pebbles to enter the shoes, expecially of course in the sand dunes sections. On the other end gaiters increase the feet temperatures and sweating, so in the end one must well evaluate pros and cons.
  4. How do I need to dress for the run ?
    Early in the morning, at start time, temperatures can be pretty crisp; so a technical long sleeve shirt before the start can be useful.
    At sunrise temperatures rise very quickly so shorts are fine but pay attention to sunbursts ! Technical T-shirts are better than tank tops, while a hi-protection sunscreen is highly reccomended to runners with pale complexion. A hat with veil is also highly reccomended.
  5. I take part in the 100km as a RUNNER: are trekking poles useful ?
    If you’re accustomed to use them is fine, but there are no long climbs.
  6. Is anti-friction cream useful ?
    With no wind carrying sand it’s OK, but in case of wind it can make things worst.
    1. How can I prevent blisters?
      Blisters come from the combination of three simultaneous conditions:
      hot + humidity + friction.
      Avoiding at least one of these conditions can reduce the probability of developing blisters.

Hot – You need to use proper socks and shoes offering an appropriate ventilation – with a size bigger than usual.
Humidity – Spare socks, expecially at the start of every stage and talcum.
Friction – Proper socks, expecially those with separate toes work pretty well. NOK cream is good (except in case of sandstorm). Compeed plasters can help.

  1. After the stage, what is the best treatment for the feet ?
    It’s necessary to perfectly wash and dry the feet in order to remove even the tiniest grain of  sand that enters everywhere and cause friction.
    It’s also necessary to medicate any possible wound. A protective cream can help.
  2. What I better carry in my emergency/medical kit ?
    Wide-spectrum antibiothics, anti-dhiarrea medications, lactic enzymes (at camps sanitary care is well applied, but during the long approaching trip different conditions can cause some gastro-intestine problems), antipyretics, a painkiller. Useful to have a smal “blister kit” with an antispetic, plasters, compeed, second skin and bandage. In any case a h24 medical assistance is granted throughout the event.
  3. I use contact lenses, any  contraindication ?
    Sand can cause some ailment to contact lenses’ users. It’s advisable to use glasses or at least a frequent wash/change of the lenses.
