April 2018 - Guy Alcock and Robert Snuggs run Marathon des Sables for DDMT


Guy Alcock and Robert Snuggs are running the Marathon des Sables for DDMT and ICVI.  These two are legends - please support hem.  On 31 March Guy wrote:

In a little over 5 days time I will be flying out to Morocco with Snuggsy to take on what is labelled “the toughest foot race on earth”  the Marathon des Sables.  Over 6 gruelling days we will be running 250km across the Sahara which equates to approximately a marathon a day with a double on day 4.   Ultra-runners (which we are not) like to call this the main event with the first 3 days seen as "warm ups."  We will be carrying all our equipment including food in temperatures upward of 50 degrees

As you have witnessed we have had the worst marathon training weather probably in the last 25 years so getting out for long runs at the weekend has been particularly soul destroying but it’s all for a good cause.  We will be raising money for three very worthy charities close to our hearts which you will find on the virgin giving page below.  CAF cheques are also welcome if you prefer


If you so wish to track our progress across the desert we will post instructions on how to do this on the sponsorship page  

Many thanks for your donations in advance.  Please feel free to forward this on to anyone who would be interested in the challenge and the cause."

Everyone at DDMT is wishing them all support and luck with this immense challenge.
