Marathon des Sables 2010 In aid of Facing Africa / NOMA 'the great adventure!'
We did it 63 hours and 27 minutes. 152 miles, 51 degrees. 63 litres of water each and miles of sticking plasters! Thank you for all our wonderful support and the best tent mates we could have wished for. It was a hard slog but the most amazing experience.

In 2010 Jo Lord and Annie Day ran over 7 days, 152 miles in the Marathon des Sables endurance race across the Sahara Desert in Morocco. The equivalent of six marathons in a row, carrying all our food and equipment. (Click here to find out more about the race)

WHY? To be honest I don't think either of us have the answer to that question, other than the challenge, a once in a life time opportunity and because we know we can!

However we will also be raising money for Macmillans cancer support and a local charity in Hay-on-Wye, The North Weir Trust. Over the next two years we want to raise as much money as possible for both these extremely worthwhile causes.

This is where you come in to our challenge.
We have been raising money for our nominated charities for the last 2 years. We have now completed our challenge but it doesn't end there. Please continue to give to Macmillans and The North Weir Trust both of whom were the reason we kept going.
