Not liking to sit still for too long, Ross and Lou (both from Wakefield) have decided to set themselves a huge challenge and have signed up for the 2016 Marathon Des Sables. That's 251km ultra marathon across the Sahara Desert carrying all your own kit. In the 50 degree heat.
They have chosen to run on behalf of Yorkshire Cancer Research - and their aim is to raise £15,000 by March 2016.
They both know someone who has, either directly or indirectly, suffered from this terrible disease and believe it's time to give something back and help Yorkshire Cancer Research continue their fantastic work.
A Facebook page has been set up so you can follow their progress https://www.facebook.com/ross.lou.mds2016/info and you can donate here
