ORLANDO, Fla. – A new exhibit is now open at the Morocco pavilion at Epcot.

  • New exhibit opens at Morocco pavilion
  • "Race Against the Sun" highlights modern-day competitions
  • Diorama of Marathon of the Sands, race gear, trophies

"Race Against the Sun: Ancient Technique to Modern Competition" is located in the Gallery of Art and History area of the pavilion. It highlights two modern-day competitions—Marathon of the Sands and Rally of the Gazelles.

Inside the exhibit, visitors will find displays like a diorama of Marathon of the Sands, race gear, trophies and a photo op inspired by the Rally of the Gazelles, the all-woman desert rally.

The exhibit also highlights the history of the Berbers, the Sahara Desert's original inhabitants.  

At the nearby Tangierine Café, visitors will find "sellout," a food highlighted in the exhibit that marathon participants commonly eat during a race.

"Race Against the Sun" is part of the many new additions at Epcot.

A Beauty and Beast sing-along is being added to the France pavilion. It's set to open in January.
