Marathon des Sables

Marathon des Sables – in March, Peter Chapman took part in this gruelling event which covers 151 miles and is run over 6 days. Competititors have to carry everything they will need for the duration of the race on their backs in a rucksack. Water is rationed and handed out at each checkpoint. Just a small insight as to why this is considered the toughest footrace on Earth! Peter finished 3rd Brit and 60th overall and raised £267.50 – well done Peter!
