THIRD STAGE FINISHED
Third Stage

The WORLD NATURE EXPLORING team with Quim and Albert finished the third stage after 05h 15 minutes of running and suffering a lot. Yesterday they lowered the rhythm a bit in order to conserve forces for the stage of  today, that will be, without a doubt, the longest: they will have to cross 68,4Km. to go from Ocucaje to Barlovento. To complete it they have 32h, later the two final stages that will remain to complete the MARATHON DES SABLES PERU.

The terrain continues to be with a lot of soft sand that makes it more difficult and with large rounded dunes, at night the wind has blown very hard causing sandstorms. The landscapes that they see during the stage are  incredible, an immense and inhospitable desert, very different from Morocco's, much more hostile.

After the abandonment by physical causes of Jose at Km. 10 of stage 2, Quim and Albert decided to run together in the second and third stages, this allowed them to help and support themselves, they will try to be together all the way. The abandonment of Jose has been a blow to the morale of the team, they had been preparing and training together for a long time and they are friends. Albert and Quim miss him, but he did what he had to do and  they know he's fine. Likewise, they are very motivated in the race and are physically well!

This first edition of the MDS in Peru is being spectacular for the landscapes and the sensations, but at the same time extremely hard by the high temperatures and the terrain that becomes very complex.

They are almost in the middle of the test and they need a lot of strength and encouragement to continue: send a message! You can do this through this website or through the organization in the following link.
