Rosie & Martin Making Good Progress In The Marathon Des Sables

Rosie and Martin at the start of Stage 3

After four days in the Sahara Desert, NFA Head of Events Rosie Thompson and beneficiary Martin Wilson have covered 189 of the 270 kilometre Marathon des Sables course. The most recent stage (Thursday) saw them cover 81.5 kilometres in 36 hours and they are due to complete their epic journey on Sunday.

Rosie has so far raised nearly £24,000 for the NFA – her target is £27,000, whilst former Para Martin, who was badly injured in Afghanistan, is also supporting Walking With The Wounded.
