Mark Mortimer completes Marathon Des Sables

Tuesday 25 Apr 2017


Congratulations to Mark Mortimer who came 345/1200 in Marathon Des Sables, known as the toughest footrace on earth. It 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. Water is rationed and if you exceed the ration, you get a time penalty.
