Marathon des Sables - Sahara Desert
This six-stage, 150-mile marathon across the Sahara desert can break even the most hardened athlete. Race rules demand utter self-sufﬁciency, so don’t expect help. You’ll carry your sleeping bag, water, food, and other items necessary for desert survival. (Pre-race examinations will confirm you have enough.) With May's scorching Sahara temps climbing over 110 degrees F during the day and plummeting to below 50 degrees F at night, your feet will swell at least two sizes. Extra-large shoes, trekking poles, a brimmed hat, and a nose kerchief for dust storms are a must. (darbaroud.com)
