A Moroccan Adventure!

Congratulations to our 89 Saharan Challenge runners and trekkers that took on 2 marathons in 2 days across the Saharan desert. Conditions were tough, with little shade and soaring temperatures, but everyone battled through to achieve something that they should be proud of. It was a experience to remember and we are proud to have helped all the challengers achieve their goals.  

Check out the website and sign up for 2017!
