My name is Darran (Daz), I am 51 years old and currently live in Kent with my wife Sarah and our 2 Huskies Sisu and Blade who are my regular training partners. I joined the Parachute Regiment at 18 years old and served for 26 years before I was Medically Discharged in 2012 due to injuries I sustained whilst training and on Operational Tours.

I recently chose to get involved with running the London Marathon 2019 for the Invictus Games Foundation as I completed the London Marathon twice, before I was injured and discharged from service. I am taking part in this year’s marathon to show I still can and to give back to this amazing charity that has not only helped me but also other WIS personnel. Whilst running and training, I hope to meet lots of amazing people who will be running for lots of other charities and for themselves as a challenge. It will be good to share stories with them and support each other in the event. It will also hopefully encourage other WIS personnel to go out and have a go and meet other people despite their injuries, and not to say I can’t but instead say I can, I will and I am.
