Follow Kevin's progess in the 'toughest footrace on earth'

Published: Mon, 30th March 2009, 12:00:00 AM
This is no easy challenge. The terrain is rough, uneven, stony ground with a fifth of the distance covered in sand dunes. Kevin has to carry everything he needs for the duration of the race in his rucksack - food, clothers, medical kit sleeping bag etc. Water is rationed daily. The longest stage is approximately 55 miles long and the temperature can get as high as 40 degrees celcius! Kevin's son Jake was born with a TOF, and Kevin is raising funds for TOFS and the Hortons Childrens ward in Banbury. Even though he's already started you can still support him by visiting the justgiving link on his website www.kevinmayoultra.co.uk You can follow his progress during the race by visiting http://www.darbaroud.com/index_uk.php Good luck Kevin, we're thinking of you!
