Nefza “Shitana Ultra Trail” eco-tourism race

Friday, May 10, 2024 to Sunday, May 12, 2024

Shitana Trail is a sporting event, bringing together several nationalities, which offers a great opportunity to discover magnificent Tunisian landscapes off the beaten track, combining both a real competition and an intense experience, in a little-known part of Tunisia. .


This event, which is in its 5th edition, is held in the green region of Mogods and specifically the region of Nefza. It contributes to the sustainable management of natural and cultural resources as well as an eco-tourist experience which is available in "trailrunning".


It also contributes to promoting nature and discovery sports, the promotion and preservation of traditional know-how, respectful of the environment.


Particular attention is being paid this year to the economic support of rural women as well as the preservation of local heritage: a project combining sporting, environmental and socio-economic aspects, shitana trail is the first "trail" in Tunisia standing in a forest (cork oaks and conifers) with a route which crosses sites which also make Tunisia rich, such as the Mediterranean Sea, the mountains. Participants will visit along a 110km route the Sidi Barraque dam, the "Jbel Shitana" National Park, the magnificent Cap Negro beach, the Mgasseb region as well as the Khroufa nature reserve.


Finally, participants will have the necessary supplies on their route, such as local products (local bread, strawberries, local seasonal fruits, local farm eggs, etc.).
