Ranked by the Discovery Channel as the most gruelling foot race on earth, this ultra-marathon is run in 6 days over a course of 250km through the Sahara desert, across salt pans, over sand dunes and up desert mountains, all in temperatures reaching 50 degrees Celsius!
The rules require you to be self-sufficient, to carry with you everything you need to survive except water. You are given a place in a tent to sleep at night, but any other equipment and food must be carried on your back. Whilst undertaking this challenge i will be raising money for Hope for Children. Being a father to five wonderful children it's a charity that's close to my heart. Please help me raise as much money a possible for such a worthy cause. Big Love Alex xx
