The Open Source Athlete

Kokoda Challenge 2007 and 2008

After finishing the Hawaiian Ironman in October 2006 my plan was to take a year off Ironman and focus on the run. I knew that I was never going to significantly decrease my swim time, and my bike time was sub-5 hours so I figured that bigger gains would come from a fast marathon off the bike.


Marathon Des Sables

My race report for the Marathon des Sables consists of emails that I sent to friends and family from the communications tent at the Bivouac each night after racing. I have also included some information on the race and interesting facts regarding race logistics.

The route for 2008 is 245.3 Km long, making it the longest ever in the history of the MARATHON DES SABLES.
