About the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles:
Established in 1990, the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles has evolved into a
major adventure-sports event, bringing together international teams of women
annually. The participants, or "Gazelles", take part in an event which
requires non-GPS based orientation, a level of finesse in terrain analysis and
map reading skills. The contestants must follow a marked itinerary in the
minimum number of kilometres; speed is not a criterion. In addition to Canada,
participants hail from countries such as France, Belgium, Italy, Portugal,
Spain, Russia, the United Kingdom, Morocco, Nigeria, Angola, Cameroon, South
Africa and Senegal. The Rallye Aicha des Gazelles is the first desert
navigation rally to adopt an eco-friendly and citizen-friendly mandate.
Based in France with a team in Quebec, MAIENGA is the founding event and
management agency of the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles.
