Marathon des Sables

Dear Friends,

BIG news! As a follow up to the Polar Circle Marathon, we recently registered for the Marathon des Sables. Also known as the "toughest footrace on earth", this is an ultra marathon, in six days, over a course of over 250 km. Also, um, it takes place in the desert. The King of Morocco His Highness Mohammed VI welcomes the event himself (although he doesn't run it, yet). Villages along the path of the race are helped and supported in many ways.

The race takes place in April of this year. We realize that it will not be a walk in the park, but we also know we’re privileged to take part in such an extraordinary event. That’s why we want to share this event with The Comrads, an NGO created by close friends of us, mainly focusing on improvement of health access and health conditions globally. You will find more information about their various projects on this website. You can support us, by helping them help others.

Polar Circle Marathon

Last year we raised 8,000€ running the Polar Circle Marathon in Greenland. All proceeds were donated to the Kangemi Resource Center (KRC) in Nairobi, Kenya. KRC is a community library and a youth and children center, serving over 100,000 people living in the informal settlements of Kangemi. You can view the Kangemi Report 2013 to learn more.
