Marathon Des Sables – Lauren Cooper

What a treat! At our Ultra Lunatics talk in 2018, we also heard from Lauren Cooper on her experience doing the Marathon Des Sables … Highlights included

  • training in her utility room with the tumble dryer on to try and replicate the heat (I LOVED THIS!)
  • being in the desert means there isn’t a bush to hide behind to go to the loo
  • Water Rationing
  • “Tents” being taken down whilst you were still in them
  • You have to carry all your provisions

This video is stunning .. I’m almost tempted to sign up myself!
