Marathon de Sables
The Marathon des Sables is the stuff of legends. It is The Toughest Footrace on Earth (Discovery Channel). MdS is a truly gruelling multi-stage adventure through a mythical landscape in one of the world’s most inhospitable environments – the Sahara desert. You have to be self-sufficient and carry all your own food and equipment for the week on your back. Communal goat’s-hair Berber tents are pitched every night but, apart from that you have to take it with you. Water is rationed and if you exceed the ration, you get a time penalty.
So this is the challenge I’ve set myself this year, 6 marathons in 6 days in the sweltering heat of the Sahara Desert. My training is going ok, so far this year I've run 677 miles with an ascent the equivalent of running up Mount Everest 2.1 times. I still have a huge amount of kit to buy, miles of training to do (with and without a 7kg back pack), weight to lose, I need to fit in some heat acclimatisation training and I still have to work out what rations (2500 calories per day) I will be taking/carrying with me. Please wish me luck...
