In detail

Just before the accident he survived being abducted by the Khmer Rouge saving himself and two colleagues from execution. Within a year of leaving hospital, he completed the London Marathon, and in 1997, he was the first leg amputee to complete the 250km Great Sahara Run. In May 2000 he completed the 100km Kumamoto volcano run in Japan and in July 2000 was one of only 12 people in the world to do the Death Valley 300 miles, from the lowest point of the USA continuously on foot to the highest point and back again in just over six days. He did it again in 2001 to test false legs and is one of only a handful of people in the world to complete this double desert crossing twice. Chris' charity work is legendary and he continues to inspire people with his marathon runs, and endurance tests, including a 700 mile cycle ride for charity in Cambodia. In September 2010 he ran an incredible 36 miles a day for 30 days across the UK visiting Post Office branches, Post Office sites and Barnardo's projects to raise money for the Barnardo's Believe in Children appeal.
