Now picture enduring those conditions for six long days, while running 156 miles. Oh, and with all your supplies loaded on to your back. Then, and only then, might you start to get some idea of Sally Camm’s nigh-superhuman feat.
Sally recently completed the Marathon des Sables, a blister-tastic epic involving almost six marathons in six days across the less than ideal conditions of the world’s largest desert. But it’s not all painful news – she also raised £10,000 for the British Red Cross.

It’s a terrible crisis, and the people obviously need our help and support – so I decided to raise money for the British Red Cross’ Syria Crisis Appeal.”
On 6 September, Elaine will undertake the famous (and famously gruelling) challenge, climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in 24 hours. In fairness, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be an easy day.
