Story

This is my final challenge of running the Toughest, Highest and Coldest footraces on Earth.  The challenge started 6 years ago with with the Marathon des Sables in honour of my father who died of lung cancer. Then in 2013 I ran the Everest Marathon.  In 2018 I return with the coldest marathon at the North Pole.  It's been a tough time since 2009 I have lost my father to cancer, suffered with the demons of depression that cost my military career and almost cost me my life. All this as well as start my  new life as a civilian, finding a job and getting engaged! 

Help for Heroes Band of Brothers have really helped towards my recovery and transition from military life.   They provide that life line to wounded, injured and sick service personnel that is so critical.  It's my turn to help them now.

Getting to the start line of this event has only been made possible with the help of StepRight, C3IA and Linaker to which I will be forever thankful.
