Get involved Events Marathon des Sables The Marathon des Sables is a 7-day trek through the Sahara desert, covering over 250km of sand dunes and salt plains. Participants must provide their own food, but water rations and a tent for camping will be supplied. This challenge will be nothing short of demanding, with temperatures reaching 50 centigrade and sand dunes stretching out for miles, but crossing the finish line will provide one of the greatest feelings of achievement possible. To sign up please buy your place through the Marathon des Sables website. Simply register on the website, then contact KIDS at [email protected] to let us know that you're signed up. We will then send you your fundraising pack and provide you with full support throughout every step of your challenge.
