You'll be in good company. Over 100 MDS 2017 competitors took part in XNRG races last year, so you're bound to meet others preparing, make friends and form tent groups. You'll also meet people who've 'been there, done that' - the perfect way to find out what works and what doesn't.

Like all XNRG events, we'll take care of everything so you can focus on the experience.

Our MDS package really is the ideal way to train for your six Saharan days of endurance! Find out more and book >
