Interview - Alex Flynn

  • Back in 2008 when training for the Marathon des Sables Alex was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s Disease. The following year he became the only Parkinson’s sufferer in history to complete that grueling desert race. Since then he has set himself the target of racing ten million metres and raising one million pounds to make a difference in the fight against this terrible disease. In just three days time he sets with Dave Clamp on an 1,800 mile run across Europe… with only 30 days to do it in!
