Travel to the desert knowing that you are prepared, both mentally and physically, for the epic challenge that awaits you.
My aim is to ensure that you get to that sandy start line with the knowledge and confidence that YOU have made the right decisions about kit, nutrition, training and whether or not to take that extra pair of socks! I will support you the whole way and get you both mentally and physically prepared for anything that the desert can throw at you. I'll even explain the toilet situation!
