The Marathon des Sables is probably the world's toughest running event. The race covers approx. 145m in six stages over seven days – which is a total of almost six marathons.
The stages include a dune day (a day that is run entirely in sand dunes) and a non-stop 50 mile stage that has to be completed within 40 hours.
