Cactus the dog takes on the Marathon de Sables

It’s renowned as one of the most brutal and iconic ultra events of the calendar, but one four-legged competitor couldn’t resist joining in with the Marathon de Sables this year. Cactus the dog joined in during one of the stages of the desert-running event and continued to the finish!

Understandably Cactus has got lots of attention from competitors, spectators and every runner on the internet! Luckily he now has his own Twitter account to share his thoughts, and to remind runners everywhere that ‘anything is paw-sible’.
