Congratulations to Fiona Oakes on her successful completion of this years Marathon des Sables – about 240km over 6 days in the Sahara desert carrying all her own supplies (and Percy). It says a lot about the toughness of this event that over 100 of around 1,000 competitors failed to stay the course. It says a lot about Fiona’s nature that she decided to sacrifice the finishing time she is capable of to ensure a fellow competitor made it to the finish. When Fiona isn’t out training, setting world records, winning marathons and and promoting veganism she will be found caring for around 400 animals at Tower Hill Stables animal sanctuary which she runs.
