About my fundraising

Hi and thanks for visiting my fundraising page!

For those of you who generously donated last year (for my 57 mile non stop ultra marathon) - you'll be pleased to know that this year I've properly lost my marbles and decided to up the ante by competing in the Marathon Des Sables (reputed to be the toughest footrace on earth).

I've no idea if I'm still in the midst of my midlife crisis or if I just like the idea of extreme physical pain, mixed with mental torture - all dished out in the comfort of 120 degree heat.! Come mid April I'll know the answer.

The Marathon Des Sables is a pretty much self sufficient 6 day ultra-marathon held in the southern Sahara over a course of approx. 156 (254km) miles. Which is the equivalent of running from London to Dover, deciding not to go to France after all and running back again. In 120 degree heat. With a full backpack on (so carrying all my food, my bed etc. etc.!)

I'll be running the equivalent of a marathon each day - a...more more

P.S. When you make a donation, don't forget to check the Gift Aid box if you're a UK taxpayer as then your charity can claim an extra 25% from the government!
