Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I cant find the original thread from earlier this year but 'Blind Dave' Heeley has just completed his 7 marathons in 7 days in 7 different countries around the world. He started over here in the Falklands last Sunday night and finished his final one today in the London Marathon. It was a pleasure to be able to meet the man him self and run a few miles with him last week with members from all the services and also the members of the forces raised a bit of money towards his charity, Ill post a final total when I know more.

    To put it in context what he achieved 'Blind Dave' and his guide Malcolm Carr are only joined by two others Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Dr Mike Stroud who have achieved this.

    Dave was doing this for Blind Dogs for the Blind

    Well done Dave for your kind words about the British forces and your wonderful achievement.
