STAGE 4  of the Marathon des Sables 2012 :
EL MAHARCH / JEBEL EL MRAÏER: 81.5 Km

Today is the dreaded long day.

At 8am the humidity was 20%, temperature: 23°C.
By 11am the humidity was 19%, but the temperature up to 29°C.
Number of runners on the start line: 821.

Meanwhile, 180 tents are being dismantled, transported and set-up by the volunteers needed to move them. The logistics are awe-inspiring! The traveling circus of the MdS is captured in this behind-the-scenes film by Suitcase Media & Productions:

Blog title inspired by the song The Distance, by the band CAKE.
