Are you interested in taking on the Marathon des Sables as part of the WWTW team in 2017? If so, please contact our Expedition Manager, Victoria Nicholson, Victoria@wwtw.org.uk
The Marathon des Sables, or MdS, is ranked by the Discovery Channel as the toughest footrace on earth. Competitors have to take on five and a half marathons in five or six days across the Sahara desert. The rules require you to be self-sufficient, to carry with you on your back everything except water that you need to survive. You are given a place in a tent to sleep at night, but any other equipment and food must be carried.
