Our brilliant MD is in the midst of an in intense training and preparing to take on the mammoth challenge that is the Marathon des Sables in April, in which he is aiming to raise £10,000 for Walking With the Wounded.
What is it?
Marathon des Sables, or MDS, is a six-day, 251 km ultramarathon, which is approximately the distance of six regular marathons. The longest single stage is 91 km long. This multiday race is held every year in southern Morocco, in the Sahara Desert. It has been regarded as the toughest foot race on Earth
Basically, 6 marathons in 6 days, carrying all necessary sleeping gear and food etc in a backpack…. In the Sahara desert!
The charity which Harry is sponsoring is Walking with the Wounded, who support our wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women in finding new long term careers outside the military, re-integrate into society and provide long-term security for themselves and their families.
While the MDS is fairly gruelling, it is nothing to the daily suffering of vulnerable veterans who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service. WWTW is there to assist them in sustaining their independence outside the military particularly through housing and employment.
To get a better idea of who is helped and why Harry is doing this, please watch this clip. Duncan is doing the MDS again this year as part of the WWTW team. Big respect.
