The Marathon des Sables (MDS) is a challenging stage ultramarathon organized by Frenchman Patrick Bauer in the Moroccan Sahara since 1986. The 230-kilometer route is determined anew for each race. There are six stages in seven days: five stages between 20 and 40 kilometers and one stage of about 80 kilometers (2009: 91 kilometers) that runners must complete in one piece in just under two days (40 hours).
