Roddy Riddle

Roddy is a cyclist and runner who has been living with type 1 diabetes since the age of 40. In 2013 Roddy completed the 'Marathon des Sables'. Hailed as the toughest footrace on earth, Roddy completed the 231.5km marathon, over five days, in extreme temperatures across the Sahara Desert.

Roddy proves that living with diabetes does not stop you in achieving your goals. Since his return he has inspired young and old, with and without diabetes, by speaking at schools and charity events about this fantastic achievement. He has raised thousands for charity in doing this and is now planning a polar challenge for 2015.
