Returning champ, Elisabet Barnes gives us the lowdown on her 2016 MDS
By Steve Diederich
Elisabet Barnes is one of our favourite ultra runners. She combines a fierce competitive spirit with a love of the sport that includes all around her and she is great fun to spend time with.
She is also generous to a fault, always having time to give to fellow runners and to share stories of her races.
Steve Diederich caught up with her after Marathon Des Sables 2016, to get her thoughts on the race.
