Craig is a man of complete determination, his lifelong dream was to become a Royal Marine. Having joined when he was 18 he suffered some medical issues, spending a few months there in hospital with Septacaemia.He was told he was medically unfit for them and discharged on the day he was due to 'pass out'. Deciding to prove them wrong he regained his fitness & ran as a pastime, competing in the New York, Florida & London marathons.However, this was still not enough & he simply had to push for something more extreme so he decided to run in the Marathon Des Sables 2011, a self sufficient marathon in the sahara desert (155 miles over 6 days).After the first 2 days the heat (52C) & extremity of this endurance was hitting him hard & he was at the brink of defeat, he had deep inpacted blisters on the balls of both feet, blisters on each toe & heel, & both feet were infected. After being advised by the medics to pull out he was at an all time low. He wrote a message to all followers on his blog to say he may not carry on! Everyone was on tenderhooks but when he appeared on the racetracker the following morning we were all in awe of his courage, he continued the race on raw feet, barely able to place one foot infront of the other but still helping his team mates get to the finish line with him. He finished the next 4 days & entire race in just over 50 hours, inspiring his followers to start running again & raised over £6000 for charity. He couldn't let anyone down, especially himself.
