Join the Foundation’s ‘Celts in the Sahara’ Trek in 2024

Following the success of last season’s Arctic Trek in January of 2023, Celtic FC Foundation are delighted to launch our next overseas challenge – ‘Celts in the Sahara’ – which will take place in February, 2024.

This inaugural event will see a group of supporters trek approximately 32 kilometers over four days through the world’s most famous desert. On one of the days, participants will summit the Chigaga Dunes – the highest sand dunes in the Sahara – in time to witness the stunning sunrise. There will also be an opportunity for everyone to explore the beautiful city of Marrakech.

The cost of the trip is £1,600 per person and this includes a non-refundable deposit of £300 which is required to confirm your place on the trip. There is also a minimum fundraising requirement of £1,800 as a charitable contribution to Celtic FC Foundation, in support of our work challenging poverty and promoting inclusion.

The package includes:

  • Return flights from central Scotland, departing on Thursday, February 15 and returning on Wednesday, February 21.
  • Transfers within Morocco.
  • Hotel accommodation on days 1, 2 and 6.
  • Tents and other camping equipment (participants must bring their own sleeping bag and sleeping mat) for days 3, 4 and 5.
  • All meals from dinner on day 1 through to breakfast on day 7.
  • Local English speaking guides, Global Adventure Challenges leader from the UK and a UK Doctor.
  • A celebration after completion of the trek.

Following payment of the £300 deposit, the balance of £1,300 can be paid in three separate installments with the final payment being due on Tuesday, October 31, 2023. The minimum fundraising amount of £1,800 must be raised by Thursday, February 08, 2024.

Places on the 2024 ‘Celts in the Sahara’ trip are limited and are available on a first come first served basis. To register your interest and receive a registration pack, please email us at [email protected] or call 0141 551 4321.
