A MARATHON runner is hoping to finish a gruelling week-long footrace with a smile on his face.

Scott Kendall, 39, of The Chase, in Findon, is flying out to Morocco today to take part in the Marathon des Sables (MDS) – a 156-mile multi-stage adventure in the Sahara.

Scott said: “My aim from a personal perspective is to have an incredible experience and finish with a smile on my face as well as to raise awareness and money for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.”

The 1,100 competitors will be self-sufficient throughout the duration of the race in which they will be ‘encouraged to almost detach themselves from reality’, according to Scott.
