Last month, the seventh season of the famous rally took place in a continuous effort to promote tourism and to prove that Egypt is safe for travels.
Cross Egypt Challenge is a unique cross-country rally on motorcycles and scooters that is the ultimate adventure for those who love adventure travel and extreme sports. The 2017 season started on October 12th and lasted for 10 days, including eight stages that consisted of a total distance of 2,490 km.
The Cairo Marriott is the official hotel sponsor having their three Marriott branded scooters joining the challenge! For the fourth year in a row, Cairo Marriott chooses to support Cross Egypt Challenge year after year because of its eagerness to promote the destination; Egypt.
The challenge began from the Mediterranean’s largest seaport city, Alexandria, and then headed east to Port Said, one of Egypt’s most busy port cities and the gate to Africa, with the final destination being Cairo to end the season under the Great Pyramids of Giza!
With a carefully planned route, the 2017 season of Cross Egypt Challenge included an endurance track that passed through many of Egypt’s finest spots including modern cities, coastal resorts, historical sites, the Eastern Desert and Egypt’s Nile Valley.
