Marathon des Sables (MdS) is a truly unique, multi-day ultra-marathon through one of the world’s most inhospitable environments – the Sahara Desert.
Alongside a thousand other runners you’ll cover 156 miles of dunes, rocky jebels and salt plains, in six gruelling days of running and trekking. Temperatures will hit 50 degrees celsius, and you'll be carrying everything you need to be self-sufficient, including food, clothing and equipment.
It's the toughest footrace on Earth. Have you got what it takes?
