I am a 29 year old Serving soldier of The 3rd Battilon The Parachute Regiment.

I've been training for 6 months including high altitude training in Kenya and other ultra marathon such as the rat race in Scotland.

This is a massive achievement and goal for me,  but most importantly I am doing this to raise as much money as possible for this great Charity, Support Our Paras.

I would love for you all to follow and support me on my journey and watch my progress, on this page:

Event details

The Jungle Ultra

I am taking part in a 230km jungle ultra marathon trek in the Manu National park, deep in the Amazon rainforest, Peru.

The course runs from the Andes mountains to the Madre di Dios river, with temperatures reaching 30 degrees during the day and dropping to 10 degrees at night. 

As a self-sufficient race, I am responsible for carrying my entire kit, including food, a minimum of 2000 calories per a day, safety equipment and a minimum of 2.5 litres of water which I can refill along the way at checkpoints.

This 230km race is over 5 stages.

Don’t know you at all but this is an epic challenge and your mates were good enough to give up their spare time today to put a few of us through our paces with the Pegasus group. They left before we could buy them a beer so hope this helps instead!
