Vegan Runner Completes Grueling 151-Mile Race

Fiona Oakes has become the first vegan athlete to complete the six-day Marathon des Sables.

Forty-two year-old Fiona Oakes has become the latest example of a vegan athlete going above and beyond—she recently completed the 151-mile Marathon des Sables in Morocco, which requires participants to trek the Sahara Desert over the course of six days. According to Clacton Gazette, Oakes is the first vegan to finish the challenge, which is the equivalent of five and a half standard marathons and often entails 120-plus degree temperatures, rocky terrain, and steep sand dunes. That’s not the only impressive thing about Oakes—she has only one kneecap, after losing the other to a cancerous tumor as a teenager, and is the owner of an animal sanctuary in Asheldham, England.
