CHRIS THRALL, EX ROYAL MARINES COMMANDO, AUTHOR OF EATING SMOKE, HIS REMARKABLE MEMOIRS, RECORD HOLDER AND NOW CHARITY KING PIN….
Meet Chris Thrall, a man with a mind so strong it has taken him into the realms of the elite but also to the depths of darkness that almost eliminated his very existence. No ordinary man and no ordinary story, which we’ll bring you in more detail next month but right now he has just finished an outrageous charity uber run the length of the UK.
Not only has he completed 999 miles on foot but unsupported and completed by running an Ultra-marathon a day until Land’s End finally called him home. That’s EVERY day with no training.
He also finished it whilst carrying with him numerous injuries and a body broken by constantg pounding of tarmac and a refusal to quit. |Every bit of his ex Marine mental and physical toughness was called upon and the pain was clear to see in some of his vlogger updates on social media.
Not that you’d ever hear him complaining…
‘This is nothing to what Veterans have to go through daily or what I have been through in the past. I can put up with this if it means raising cash to help ex commandos, especially those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. We cannot lose more lifes through that.’
His ex Marine training and attitude had to be summoned if he were to complete this mission. It was called upon too but when he came up with this plan to raise money for troubled and injured vets.
Let him tell you the story and then sponsor the bejesus out of him as he has just finished this astounding challenge…
