We all knew he was an endurance machine, both physically and mentally, but Duffy is surpassing even our high expectations in the Marathon des Sables 2018.
Currently, he waits for the start of the “long stage” with 49 other other members of the world’s most elite endurance athletes. This will see day 4 of the infamous race and its double marathon take place. We can expect the elite athletes to come in somewhere between 8-14hrs with the rest of the pack being given a maximum of 35hrs to complete the challenge. The reward for finishing this stage? Well if they finish quickly then tomorrow is a rest day. But not much of a rest because the final race day on Friday takes the form of a full marathon.
Determination is not something which Duffy lacks but support from home will undoubtedly give him the extra boost he needs to bring the race home with a strong finish on the final marathon.
