Marathon des Sables

Become fearless when you participate in the toughest foot race on earth!

The Marathon des Sables is the stuff of legends. It is The Toughest Footrace on Earth (Discovery Channel).

The 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.
