A Peruvian at the MDS - a clash of cultures
Remigio HUAMAN QUISPE
Remigio HUAMAN QUISPE is rather incongruous on the bivouac of the 32nd MARATHON DES SABLES. With his alpaca cap, typical of the Peruvian region of Huancavelica where he resides, and his quite minimalist equipment with respect to the other competitors (for instance, he has no gaiters), one can wonder if he really knew...
MDS PERU STAGE 4
MDS PERU TOUCH THE PACIFIC
With its 68.4 km, the long stage, so much feared by the competitors of the MARATHON DES SABLES PERU, was maybe not so long, but the maximum time of 32 hours was hinting a major challenge: thirty kilometres of sand under a scorching heat...but with sublime landscapes. THE EVENT OF THE DAY: A START ALONG A SINGLE LINE...

MDS PERU STAGE 2
A RATHER ADVENTUROUS FIRST EDITION
The second bivouac of this MARATHON DES SABLES PERU is immersed in an incredible landscape: to the right, a small mountain and steep cliffs are looking over the tents; to the left, a huge hard-sand dune is blocking the horizon; and straight on, an immense plain striped with green areas gives way to a line of majestic...
