Education For All (EFA) has joined forces with ABB FIA Formula E Championship to offer the Marrakech Atlas Sprint.

The activity will take place in the morning just before the public cycling activity, Marrakchis Sur La Piste. These, activities, combined with the Formula-E Championship, will make for a fabulous day out. Why not combine this day with a weekend or longer in the exotic city of Marrakech?
