Books and Movies that Fueled our Adventure!

This is one of our favorite documentaries on the MDS that features a group of brothers reuniting to run this race together:

Fiona Oakes is an inspiration of ours and a true hero! She’s an amazing ultrarunner and lifelong vegan. This documentary provides a great profile of her and the expansive landscape of the MDS:

Losers: Episode 5 - Lost in the Desert Episode. Believe it or not, this is how we first found out about the MDS. It’s an amazing story of Mauro Prosperi, an Italian runner who gets lost during this race. You must watch it to find out what happens! This episode is kind of what made us think… “we could do this!“ 🤷🏼‍♂️🤣
