Mandy’s Marathon des Sables Challenge starts Easter Sunday

21 August 2017 
Mandy is finalising preparations for her Marathon des Sables challenge starting on Easter Sunday. This race covers 170 miles in extreme 50 degree heat over six days,
across the Sahara desert in Morocco.

Mandy has been raising funds for Headway Salisbury and South Wiltshire all year with her marathon a month challenge and all funds raised from the race run will go towards Headway SSW.

Mandy has already been out to Morocco to train with Mohamad Ahansal, five times winner of the MDS, so that she can get used to running in the desert.

She said of the race “This is a challenge of a lifetime – I still can’t believe I’m going!”
