As a member of the British Army Reserves Neil went on to complete some of the toughest challenges set for British soldiers. He was commissioned as an officer through Sandhurst College, where he spent time with the Army Reserves and Bomb Disposal Unit. The army sparked Neil’s deep interest in physical challenges, and as a result in 2003 he completed his first Marathon. This subsequently led him onto more extreme physical challenges including an Ironman, the Marathon Des Sables in the Sahara desert, the Ultra Trail de Mont Blanc, the Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon in the South African desert and the Yukon Arctic Ultra – a 300 mile foot race in -55 degrees centigrade, which he won.
Today, Neil is the founder of Extreme Energy – XNRG – Ltd who organise single and multi-day ultra-distance events in the UK. He is also a coach, consultant and teacher who helps companies develop their leadership and sales teams.
