"The Marathon des Sables" - Former Royal Marines Commando 'Rus McDonagh' attempts the toughest foot race in the world and he's flying the flag for Dragon; @DragonCoin


April 6, 2018 ( Newswire) Dragon is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring Rus McDonagh as he attempts the toughest foot race in the world aka; The Marathon des Sables.

Here's what Rus had to say about the event;

"My name is Rus McDonagh and I am a former Royal Marines Commando.

I'm currently a security consultant, a qualified personal fitness trainer and the founder of The Green Beret Coffee Company.

This year, I will be competing in the Marathon des Sables, which is a six-day, 251 km ultra-marathon event. This is approximately the distance of six regular marathons. The longest single stage is 91 km long.

This multiday race, held every year in the Sahara Desert, Southern Morocco has been dubbed 'the toughest footrace on earth'.

For the first 3 days its approximately a marathon per day, but it's day 4 that separates the men from boys and this comprises of running a total distance of 90 kilometres with many participants running well into the night.

In summary you run/walk/crawl (any are acceptable) your way over approximately 250 kilometres of desert, whilst carrying your own food, medical kit, sleeping gear and personal items. Add to this a limited water supply, which is received at certain checkpoints throughout the course and at the end of each day, and there you have yourself one character building week!

I've been asked by quite a few people why on earth I'm doing this and I'll do my best to explain. The older I get the more aware I become, of how quickly life passes us by. So I made a decision to cram as much adventure into my life as possible.

I'm lucky enough to have experienced some of the amazing (and some not so amazing) things that this world has to offer, both in and out of the Royal Marines. For many of us, when we settle down, sometimes we end up settling for less adventure as well, and what used to be the norm can turn back into dreams or challenges to be accomplished on a bucket list. We have a duty to ourselves to live our dreams and/or stand up to these challenges.

I truly believe that my timed served in the Royal Marines has contributed to moulding me into the person I am today and with that being said, I wanted to give something back, so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to do some fundraising for the Royal Marines Charity. In my opinion, the Royal Marines Charity are sometimes overlooked by some of the better known charities and that's another reason why I want to help out here.

I approached Dragon for sponsorship as I had been informed that the co-founder 'Paul Moynan', a former Royal Marine himself, would understand the challenges laid down by this event and also the challenges we face inside ourselves as retired armed forces personnel and the beast (or Dragon) we need to feed within.

The support of Dragon has really helped me achieve (hopefully) a life goal and it's been great working with, and getting support from people who share the same passions as I do for pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo.

Thank you to all the personnel at Dragon for supporting me during this event."

-Rus McDonagh

Dragon is proud to sponsor Rus as he undergoes this epic endurance race, but as well as supporting a former Royal Marine on his life journey, it is the word'endurance' that is especially poignant to Dragon.

As a blockchain provider and utility token serving the entertainment, gaming and sports industries, Dragon knows the road ahead is long, in fact there is no finish line and therefore the pace must be steady and strong.
