Women Lead Climate Action

It’s a privilege to embark on the Vinson Massif expedition with a team of women who are also supporting some great causes. Take a look at the UN’s Women Lead Climate Action Programme in Cambodia, as well as the Her Planet Earth page. Check out Sandra Marichal’s video about her experience in Antarctica.

MdS | BARAKA

Baraka in MdS

Marathon des Sables was gruelling! I faced many challenges while running the Sands, but just took it one day at a time. Running an ultra marathon every day was not an easy feat, but doing it for a greater cause proves to be very motivating!

Off to Greenland! | BARAKA

I’m off to Greenland!

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

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!
