Grant McTaggart from Darlington Tri Club recently ran Marathon des Sables, one of the toughest challanges for an athlete to take on. The Marathon des Sables is a multi-stage adventure through the Sahara desert with 1,000 other participants - 150 miles of running, walking and trekking over 6 days. That’s the same as five and a half marathons in extreme conditions in 120 degrees Fahrenheit while carrying everything to be self-sufficient including food, clothing and medical supplies.
Come and join Grant at Hummersknott School on September 23rd,19:00 - 21:00 and hear his story of how tough this event actually is and what he had to go through to complete the race.
It's £6 entrance fee, to be paid on the door and includes refreshments and there will be a raffle on the evening.
100% of money raised will be donated to St Theresa's so please offer your support to Grant and a worthy local charity.
