Day 7 – Final Day and Medal Ceremony

Day 7 – The final day.

After completing 248km of the race, all that there was left to do was run 2km around the pyramids in Cairo to the finish line. We jumped into the bus after clearing up the campsite and drove 2.5 hours back to Cairo. We jumped off the bus to the magnificent sight of the pyramids. Impressive in photos – even more impressive in real life. Unbelievable what the ancient Egyptians were capable of.

We gave the organisers a few minutes to see up for our arrival and then we set off bound for the finish line and into the arms of loved ones. Emma arrived the night before and was eagerly waiting for me at the finish.

My final result – 16th overall from 160 starters. I did it in a time of 36hrs 58mins.

Here are the final shots of the epic adventure.
