Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I ran the 2015 MdS for charity and will be again in 2017.

This year I will be running in aid of ABF The Soldiers Charity.

Billed as the toughest foot race on earth running through the Sahara dessert covering 260km, the equivalent of 6 marathons in 5 days! Not including a charity half marathon in aid of UNICEF on the last day over the highest dunes in Morocco.

In this day and age of constant charity giving requests I sincerely hope that you find my event and cause worthwhile enough for a donation.

In anticipation of your generosity, I thank you on behalf of all those that will benefit from your kindness.
