The Marathon des Sables is a self-supported 156 mile/ 251 kilometre multi-stage ultra race held every year in the Moroccan Sahara Desert. It attracts a huge number of entrants year on year, and seems to be the ‘rite of passage’ for all would be endurance athletes.

But you don’t need to be some super fit elite athlete to complete the Marathon des Sables. The race is achievable for anyone willing to put in the time and effort to train.

Steph is a self-confessed slow plodder who entered the race to have an incredible adventure. In this book she shows what worked for her and other slow plodders, and gives an insight into what to expect from this amazing event. If you are more of a back of the pack athlete who wants to complete rather than compete and have an incredible experience, then this book will help you train, pack, prepare and cross the finish line to claim your medal.
