Imagine a 250km six day race across the Sahara desert carrying all that you need to survive on your back and competing against over 1,300 racers from all over the world - welcome to the Marathon des Sables, the toughest footrace on earth.

The charity Walking With The Wounded enlisted an inspirational team of runners including wounded ex-servicemen and fundraisers – including Olympic skier Graham Bell and rugby league legend Keith Senior - to compete in the 30th Marathon De Sables, all to raise money to support wounded veterans back into employment and regain their independence.

We follow their epic adventure as they push their bodies to the limit, as they live and compete in the treacherous terrain of the Sahara desert. Away from the creature comforts of modern living, these brave men and women must work as a team to support each other through the highs and lows as they race the Sahara.
