Greig and Willie update

6 June 2012

The gruelling Marathon De Sables taking place in early 2013 is drawing closer. The legendary event is a six day, 243km endurance race across the Moroccan Sahara and local Wellington fitness gurus Greig Rightford and William Tokona are taking part.

The incredible duo has not only set the goal to complete what has been named “the toughest footrace on earth”, but have a second goal to raise $50,000 for us, the Malaghan Institute. We are extremely proud and grateful to be their chosen charity for the event.

Greig and Willie have been documenting each step (and injury) of their training for the event and you can watch their latest video update here. You can also keep up to date by following their facebook page and you can sponsor their amazing efforts by visiting their fundraising page.
