Alex Haslam, a corporate finance associate at Norton Rose, is planning to run six marathons over six days through the Sahara Desert. Alex, if you want to leave, just go. There's no need to go mad.
But apparently Haslam has no intention of leaving his job. He's decided to take some time off next year to run 151 miles over sand dunes and rocks.
The self-described "madman" will join the race along with 600 equally disturbed entrants to raise money for charity. He's just begun training for the event - presumably by jogging round a sauna - which will take place over Easter next year.
If you'd like to sponsor Haslam, you can track him down on 020 7444 2493. Tulkinghorn offers a sincere good luck - and don't forget the sunscreen.
