World Marathon Challenge 2022

In October 2022, Darren will attempt to become the first disabled person to complete the iconic challenge of running seven marathons in seven days on seven different continents. Referred to as the World Marathon Challenge, more people have stood on the summit of Everest than have completed this gruelling logistical, physical and psychological test.

With the first marathon taking place at Camp Novo in Antarctica, and with the fourth taking place in Dubai, Darren will be subject to both extremes of temperature as well as the challenge of running marathons in these temperatures.

Raising £80,000 for the Armed Forces Para-Snowsports Team (AFPST):

In addition to the gruelling physical challenge, Darren is aiming to raise £80,000 to pay for 50 injured/wounded veterans to learn to ski (many for the first time since their injuries – something Darren benefited directly from since this injury.

The order of marathons is as follows: Camp Novo (Antarctica); Cape Town (Africa); Perth (Australia); Dubai (Asia); Madrid (Europe); Fortaleza (South America); Miami (North America).
