Write to me in the desert

When I’m out in Morocco, ironically people with access to the internet will know more about the race than I do. With the technology providing rankings and video footage very day, I’m looking forward to being in a bubble.

That said, it would be nice to get some uplifting emails. Every now and then, whilst we’re in bivouac we will get handed some emails. Previous competitors tell me that this quiet time can be quite uplifting.

So jokes gratefully received!

I’ll be able to send one email a day – if I can stand waiting to get to a computer. I’ll be sending this home and then hopefully it’ll get posted on here and then out to Facebook and Twitter.

Otherwise, I’ll be in the desert bubble…and if anyone takes a mobile, I might accidentally step on it… joke.

The details I’ve been sent by the organisers for sending an email are beneath. The details needed are Charlwood, Ashley 542.

section “write to competitors”

After 11 april, this email service will no longer be operational.

Only messages with surname, first name and race ID number will be transferred.

Do not send attachments (e.g. photos). This will cancel the message. Messages will be given to competitors on the bivouac every day. Note: AOI cannot transfer messages posted on Facebook, Twitter,… .
