Georgios Ardavanis. Akadrem Inc. ISBN: 978-960-87571-3-4a © 2010, Athens, Greece.

This book is about the story of Georgios Ardavanis running the world’s most challenging foot race. The Marathon des Sables is the world’s most famous multi-stage ultramarathon, crossing the Sahara Desert in Morocco. The rules require you to be entirely self-sufficient. For the race entry, you get a spot in a tent to sleep in each night, and that is it. Everything else that you need to survive the entire week must be carried with you on your back.
