Back from the Sahara!

< Back to listing

Nick Mackenzie is back from the Sahara, having completed the Marathon des Sables and coming an incredible 63rd out of 1000 runners! The top 50 runners will undoubtedly be the elite of the extreme running world and so Nick can be very proud of his achievement. Whereas most runners were returning to the tent each night with injuries, blisters and bleeding feet, Nick remained amazingly healthy throughout.

“I had an amazing time…the Marathon des Sables is a completely unique race and it really was a privilege to see that part of the world in such a fun way. I was really chuffed to get 63rd place and equally pleased to hit my fundraising target for the Mill (both of which wouldn't have happened without the support of Cat, my wife)".

Nick smashed his target by raising over £2,000 for Romsey Mill and donations are still coming in…it is not too late to show your support at
