Duncan Slater: Double leg amputee completes Toughest Race
- Updated: April 15, 2017
Duncan Slater has made history after becoming the first double amputee to complete the “toughest race on Earth” across the Sahara desert.
Afghanistan veteran Duncan Slater completed the 251km (156 miles) Marathon Des Sables in Morocco on Friday evening.
The ex-RAF platoon sergeant has raised £20,000 for servicemen and women in his second attempt at the endurance event.
Duncan said: “I very much hope that through my efforts, I will inspire other wounded, injured and sick from the armed forces community and beyond, to come forward to ask for help but to also know that there is life beyond injury.”
Since last Sunday, Norwich-based Mr Slater and his former colleague Chris Moore have been travelling across the Sahara desert in temperatures reaching 50C (122F).
The pair, who had to carry all their food and equipment, served in Afghanistan together when Mr Slater’s vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb in 2009.
