The Press Conference for MARATHON DES SABLES PERU took place yesterday, 1st of June, 2017 in Lima, the capital of the Peru. MDS executives, along with Patrick Bauer, as well as the Peruvians partners - Marca PERÚ, Visit Peru and PromPerú Oficial - put on a show in the presence of the Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Eduardo Ferreyros.
Remigio Huaman Quispe was also present; this peruvian-highlands runner participated in the MDS MAROC 2017. Thus making it the very first time he has participated in a race of this kind - in stages, in the desert, in self-sufficiency - this charming and willing Peruvian finished 5th in the general ranking, only 1h 37min difference between the winner, Rachid El Morabity. In 6 months, both will once again have the opportunity to go head-to-head, only this time in the sandy Peruvian Ica desert, some 180 miles south of Lima, right at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Behind them (surely) the 500 competitors who will also try to become the first finishers of the newest adventure, expected to be an epic one.
Reminder: registrations to the MDS PERU opened May 16, and will take place from November 26 to December 6, 2017.
