Flooded in Sahara

Well it sure has been an interesting couple of days.

Camp one was flooded and all the competitors had to be evacuated to hotels. However, 4 people to a 2 man room assured that we all felt like we were in camp.

In fact our British spirit really showed through yesterday when about 20 of us broke camp (the hotel) and went for a run in the rain, much to the amusement of the other nationalities.

The first stage of the race has had to be scrapped as the tents and equipment could not rescued in time for today’s scheduled start.

But fear not, the race may be 1 day shorter, but the organisers have thrown in 10 miles of the biggest dunes around into a revised day one to keep Marathon des Sables on target as the toughest footrace on earth.
