The Marathon Des Sables, or MdS, is a gruelling multi-stage adventure through the Sahara desert, where muscle and mettle are put to the test over five days of running. It’s an unforgettable experience and a race that grows in popularity every year, with around 800 runners rising to the challenge under the boiling Moroccan sun.
Walking With The Wounded have an inspirational team of fundraisers running the MdS this year, and already the next wave of competitors are being invited to register their interest for 2015 with entrance open to individuals and teams, amateur and elite runners. With runners coming from all over the world, the MdS is a truly international event that has a positive impact on the local environment and in local communities. Running for Walking With The Wounded will raise valuable funds for injured servicemen and women, and give you a chance to say you’ve competed in the toughest foot race on Earth.
