About my fundraising

Hi and thanks for visiting my fundraising page!

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
