Off to Greenland! | BARAKA

I’m off to Greenland!

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Mt Gunnbjorn fjeld

Mount Gunnbjørn Fjeld is the highest mountain peak in the Arctic (3694m) located on the remote east coast of Greenland and forms part of the Watkins Range of nunataks (rocky mountains protruding from the glacial ice-cap). From 23 May 2017 I will be climbing this magnificent summit for BARAKA! It has been a dream of mine to achieve this climb ever since I read about it…

MdS Day 4

Posted Leave a commentPosted in MdS

Today marks 100km. So far, so good, but my feet are taking a beating – blisters! I ran through dunes and over the jebel covered in sand. Tomorrow is the big distance day: 86km in one go! Not easy. I really hope this inspires people to sponsor me and donate.

MdS Day 1

The first MdS race day spanned a distance of 30.3km through amazing scenery: dunes, rocky hills, big spaces and a big blue sky. I took it easy today and finished in just over 6 hours – a respectable placing!
