Prometheus Sponsors Marathon de Sables

Marathon de Sables

Prometheus is extremely proud to be sponsoring Gordon Murphy who, along with 800 other competitors, will be running across the Sahara Desert in the 27th annual Marathon de Sables. Starting on 5th April 2012 and finishing on the 16th April 2012, this ultra-marathon covers around 155 miles in over 6 days, the equivalent of 5 1/2 regular marathons.

Gordon is raising funds for MENCAP, a charity who support thousands of parents, carers and people with a learning disability to lead a full and valued life. MENCAP is a charity close to Gordon’s heart and he is hoping to raise £9,500 by running this 6 day ultra-marathon across the Sahara Desert.

Good luck Gordon!
