Nigel Dogett faces the Sahara

Nigel, pictured, who works at Autoglass, ran six marathons in six days across the Sahara. He said: “The challenge has been tough, but it has been truly unforgettable. Carrying both myself and my survival supplies through the desert in the blazing sun then under the stars is an experience that will forever be etched in my memory. I’m incredibly pleased to have even finished such a feat, so placing 255th out of over 1,000 runners was far ahead of my expectations.”
