This is the most beautiful ultra I've ever experienced. Scenery is epic, friends for life. One of the toughest footraces out there but hasn't set me back the same as the other desert Ultras (!), I also had to postpone a year and didn't lose my entry fee. would recommend to anyone wanting the challenge of a lifetime with scenery spectacular enough to make you forget the pain (ish!).

The best value ultra out there. Organised very well, epic and tough environment. Made life long friends, and it didn't cost me £2000!!!!
