Alastair takes on the Marathon des Sables for Hostage UK

In April, Alastair Westwood will be taking on the infamous Marathon des Sables to raise funds for Hostage UK. This 250km ultramarathon is known as the toughest footrace on earth and sees runners covering a marathon a day, whilst carrying their kit and food across the Sahara Desert in blistering heat. This is not just a race, it is a tough physical and mental challenge and tests even the most experienced of ultra runners.

Alastair has set himself this incredible challenge to help us to raise funds to support our work with families and returning hostages. Alastair will be completing this feat of endurance in memory of his father, who was kidnapped and sadly killed in Mexico in 2003.
