Description

The MdS Expo is now in its 8th year

"The Expo" is an intense immersion experience for all those entering the MdS in 2020. The concept of the event is to remove doubt and myths replacing them with specific, actionable advice, tips and guidance to allow you to formulate a plan to get the most out of the MdS. Experienced MdS'ers will be on hand to talk to and you will be able to try out kit and food and understand the reality of what you need to get over the finish line.

As ever, we have top class speakers and experts to help you understand the challenge ahead of you:

  • Patrick Bauer - Race Director and founder of MdS, will give the opening address

  • Panel of experienced MdS participants - 'What happens when, and how to be prepared for everything'.

  • Nick Saunders - Top Tips for the non-ultra runner

  • David Hellard - How to (mentally) conquer the race before you get on the plane

  • Shane Benzie - How to maximise efficiency, reduce your chance of injury and increase performance

  • Susie Chan - Packing smart and light

  • Elisabet Barnes (female MdS winner) How to prepare your perfect race

  • Precision Hydration - Staying hydrated and acclimatise to the heat

  • Jodie Moss - How heat and nutrition will affect your performance

  • Chris Moon - One step beyond: Double Amputee, Landmine survivor, MdS finisher


We will have exhibitors showing off MdS specific kit ranging from venom pumps to sleeping bags. Tea and coffee will also be provided throughout the day. Additionally, lunch will be provided by Expedition Foods, so this will be your chance to try their range of freeze dried products.Hydration and sweat testing will be provided by Precision Hydration.
