Huge shout out to Mark Foster and Nicola Burney-Gunn who just completed the Marathon des Sables, a six-day, 250km ultramarathon, which is approximately the distance of six regular marathons. This multiday race is held every year in southern Morocco, in the Sahara Desert, with the longest single stage being 91 km long.

Here is them showing off their medals gained after enduring heat, sandstorms, mountainous terrain, blinding sun, cold desert nights and many many miles.

Well done to both of them


Well done to all our London Marathon runners and thank you to all the BRC members and friends who helped at the 6 mile Water Station (in the rain) - great job everyone!

A few more volunteers are required to man the water station, now switched to our preferred spot at the 6 mile point near Greenwich and Cutty Sark.

Coach travel there and back included, probably 6:45am departure from Brentwood Centre, for a 7:30 to 13:15 shift.

Please let Steve Birkett know if you wish to volunteer by 9 March at latest:
