My name is Josh Conway I'm 31 years old, originally from Wales and I've always been attracted to pushing myself and finding challenges that are far from normal. I heard about the MARATHON DES SABLES back in 2005 and this is the first time I've been able to compete. I'm running this year to raise money for the mental health charity Combat Stress. Every year since 2011 I have taken part in a major charity event for Combat Stress, however this is the toughest yet. In the weeks before the event I will be getting married although my wife to be has turned down the opportunity to come to the desert for our honeymoon…
