2010_01_aiken.jpgThought Daniel Humm's 6:32 mile average in the NYC Marathon was impressive? One Michelin-starred British chef is running a 151-mile race across the Sahara to raise money for charity: "Alongside 700 competitors, [Tom] Aikens will run the equivalent of five-and-a-half marathons in six days while carrying a backpack weighing up to 14kg (30lb) containing food, snacks, a sleeping bag, flares, a first aid kit and (of course) a stove. Water is rationed to 12 litres a day. The event takes place in blistering heat in southern Morocco..." Um, he wins. [Independent]
