Karen Alford from Half Marathon to MDS in under 12 months!

Karen Alford

You don’t need to be an ultra runner or even have years of running experience to take part in the Marathon des Sables.

With the right attitude, attention to detail and planning, you can complete the MDS whatever your background.

This week we speak to Karen Alford, who did just this. With little running experience. No more than a half marathon under her belt. Karen completed the 2022 Marathon des Sables.

Listen in to find out how she did it.

Some links are mentioned in the podcast.
