Best Ultra Run Experience:
Himalayan 100 mile stage race (1998). fantastic scenery, local people and commarardie. Also finished 2nd which was unexpected (actualy leading at one point)
London to Brighton. Furthest that I had run at the time and this is a route normally associated with classic card rallies!!
Marathon de sable(2000). Carrying own kit, heat and sand made this very very tough particularly the 48 mile stage which followed the previous stage across dunes in temperature of 50 degrees C.
Meet people, experience new places, sense of achievement and raise money for charity
World famous event but with limited field it is still very special. I have not been to the area before and hear that the atmosphere is very special. Also keen to raise money for charity.
Yes. Dreams Come True who fulfill dreams of critically and terminally ill children eg. by paying for holiday. I chose this because it has a good fit with sense of adventure and I am keen to do what little I can for children clearly so much worse off than I
