My son will run 86.2km today and into the night

See the whole of his team here..

They are collectively hoping to raise £104k for Macmillan Cancer Support Nurses, and have raised over £90k so far.

They have all completed three gruelling runs of over 30 km each, been blown to bits by a 2 hour hurricane during the night, scaled mountains, skidded down sand dunes – the adventure of a lifetime. Marathon des Sables

I shall be glued to the GPS tracking and live updates on the website, and the outstanding photographic coverage – and crocheting like mad!!!

6 Marathons in the Desert

And on the subject of SCALE!!!!

I just had to share with you what my crazy son is up to

Marathon des Sables

He is running 6 marathons in 6 days in the Sahara in April.

This is totally OFF THE SCALE!

If you would be interested to see him in his video of one of his training runs

66 Miles in two days!!!

yer tiz.

 

He and his team are raising money for Macmillian Cancer Support, so it would be wonderful if you felt you could sponsor him.

I’m full of amazement and admiration – he has always loved a challenge!
