Hi all, just 2 days till I fly out to Morocco to run the famous Marathon des Sables 2016. Apparently it’s around 257km this year. Longest year yet.

I’ll be posting an update with final kit list, and last min nerves etc tomorrow night, but for now here is some info on how to follow me during the event.
