Marathon des Sables 2019

Date: TBC
Entry: £3950 – including flights
Min sponsorship: £3000


The Marathon des Sables is the stuff of legends. It is the Toughest Footrace on Earth.

We’re not kidding. You take this on, you go down as a Humanitas LEGEND.

That’s because MdS is a gruelling multi-stage adventure through a mythical landscape in one of the world’s most inhospitable environments – the Sahara desert.

In just six days you will run over 250km (156 miles) through endless dunes, over rocky jebels, and across white-hot salt plains. The sun will be your constant enemy with temperatures regularly reaching 50 centigrade. The sand will be your constant companion, clouds of it under your feet, sheets of it stinging your eyes and lots of it chafing where it shouldn’t!

The Long Stage has become a legend in itself. You will run out on a Saharan morning, though the day, on into dusk, and then into the dark, with many runners not finishing the 80+km (52 miles) until well into the next day.

Your feet will swell, crack, and bleed under the pressure and the heat. But none of that will matter when you cross the finishing line - a Humanitas Hero.


Big Five Marathon

Date: 23rd June 2019
Location: South Africa
Cost: From £1525
Minimum Sponsorship: £1500

That’s right, you did read that right… the Big Five Marathon is held in South Africa!

Why run through grey and boring city streets when you can run amongst the wildlife of the South African savannah? Runners from all over the world will meet in one of the most spectacular “Big Five” game reserves in the world. 

In these magnificent surroundings, we combine exciting safari drives with a challenging marathon route going right through the habitat of the most famous African game: Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard.

No fences, no rivers, nothing at all separates the runners from the African wildlife.

Entry opens soon! Register your interest.
