Dean Colin with the help of the team at Soreen has just completed the ‘Toughest footrace on the planet’, the 2012 Marathon de Sable.
The Marathon de Sable is a 250km footrace across the Sahara Desert in Morocco. It is made up of 6 stages ranging in length from 18 miles to 52 miles.The equivelent of 6 marathons in 6 days.
This year was one of the toughest events in recent year and saw some extraordinary weather, from thunder & lightening, hale storms through to 52 degree heat with blinding sunshine.
This year there were 48 diferent nations represented from the 900 individuals competing, a truely global gathering of ultra marathon desert athletes.
Dean managed to secure a top 300 position finishing 297th overall and 107th in the veteran category, with a time of just over 40 hours for the whole event.
Thank you if you are able to help out, the money raised goes to The Youth Sport Trust, an organisation that helps to build a bighter future for young people, through PE and psort in schools.
The team at Soreen helped Dean with fundraising and excellent items of Soreen kit. They also provided excellent nutritional support with the aid of their superb fruit loafs, which kept Dean going through those 50 mile training runs and during the Marathon de Sable itself.(Cinnamon and raisin a bit favourite).
Thanks to everyone at Soreen, I couldn’t have done it without you.
