‘Great little book’, ‘Well written’, ‘A fantastic read’ 

“What’s it like to run 150 miles across the Sahara desert carrying all of your kit on your back?”

Graeme Harvey award winning trainer, speaker, coach and pretty average endurance athlete. Graeme challenges his clients to set goals and raise the bar. Putting his money where his mouth is, Graeme has embarked on a variety of different challenges from the 26.2 miles of the marathon, the Iron Man triathlon, climbing up Kilimanjaro to Ultra Marathons. On May 25th 2011 Graeme signed up for one of his toughest challenges to date the self styled ‘Toughest Footrace on Earth’ the Marathon des Sables in the 125 degree heat of the Moroccan Sahara. 

In this little book (designed to be read in under 2 hours) Graeme takes you on his journey through the 2013 race, what it’s really like, warts and all, from wanting to quit, starting the hardest stage in the last 10 years of the race completely spent, to the toilet facilities (be warned), kit* and more. What’s it like running 150 miles across the ‘Highway to Hell’? – Read on...

    Great read

    Having just been granted a confirmed place for the 2017 MDS, I found this book very helpful and some great tips. A pleasure to read your experience. No unnecessary going on and on straight to the point read.
