“In November 2014, aged 49, I was given the news that I have effectively-terminal prostate cancer and may only live as short as two years.
“After the initial shock and emotion I came to realise that what life I still have is there for living. In the time that I have I believe that I have a duty to create the best memories I can for my family and friends, whilst doing all I can to raise awareness and money for Prostate Cancer UK.
“So for 2018, I set myself some serious challenges; completing the Likeys Yukon 6633 Ultra, pulling a sledge inside the Arctic Circle in temperatures below -30c; 2 weeks later to the Sahara to compete in the Marathon Des Sables for a third time. That’s another 250k carrying all your supplies for the week on your back where the temperature exceeds 50c (hence the 100 degrees of separation).....................
