PT-03 DESERT - Lt. Col Ian J. Mercer RADC : Marathon des Sables

>>12 March 2008

Dear UK Gear,

Thank you very much. I am a bit of a fan of your gear after buying a pair of PT-03s in Iraq (in the NAAFI not the local shops) and have run two marathons in them since. This new pair is my fourth pair and is in readiness for the Paris Marathon in early April. I am also lined up for the Loch Ness Marathon in Oct and plan to do Paris again in April 09 then an ultra 3x marathon in Oct 09. This madness is in preparation for the Marathon des Sables in 2010. I was happy to read on your website that a chap had done the MdS in a pair of PT-03s and this might mean I have one less kit decision to make.

As a bit of an 'old man' anything that can help my poor old legs is very welcome. Will no doubt write again in Sept to order my next pair.

Many thanks.
