Simon ran 6 Marathons in 6 days!


Simon planned to complete the infamous Marathon des Sables (MdS) which involves running over 156 miles (that’s six regular marathons) in six days, across the Sahara Desert. Due to Covid, the event was cancelled so he did his own thing, running a marathon a day starting with the Exmoor Trail Marathon on Saturday 17th October followed by a further marathon each day for the next five days.

“What I did, is nothing compared to those coming to terms with a life-changing spinal injury. My inspiration is Rob Butt who was Head of the History Department at Downside School until a tragic accident in Malta left him paralysed from the neck down.
