The sport originated in Morocco in 1984. The marathon is ran in the Sahara Desert and is called the "Marathon des Sables". The race is 156 miles long. Instead of score, there are places like 1st places, 2nd place and 3rd place. There is no limit to people. The point is to run the whole thing. A rule to the race is no throwing out trash. All participants bring there own supply's like water and food in a book bag. There are different age groups, even though they all race at the same time. The sport hasn't really changed since its been created other than maybe different checkpoints and distances.
