James and Ben's Ultra X Morocco 110
Saturday 04 November 2023 to Sunday 05 November 2023
James and Ben
We are James and Ben, former rugby players who met at University. We started this journey as total running amateurs but with the goal of pushing our bodies to their limits whilst raising money for an incredible cause we have been close to for a number of years.
As two total running amateurs, we will be attempting to run 110km over a two day multi-stage Ultra Marathon.
Nicknamed the door of the Sahara desert, Ouarzazate is positioned in south-central Morocco, south of the High Atlas Mountains.
We will attempt to go on a sensory journey, past Kasbahs, through traditional fortified villages, lush oasises and over the rocky Sahara desert.
We want to raise funds and awareness for MND (Motor Neuron Disease), to help people suffering from this cruel disease.
There is currently no cure for MND, it is always fatal, with a median life expectancy of only 1.5 - 3 years.
Every pound raised takes us a step closer to finding a cure and raising awareness for people living with this disease, helping them suffer less and live their lives to the fullest.
