Desert Run

A former cadet and officer on the Sqn, Jason Reuben has completed a triple marathon accross the wastes of the Namibian Desert in Southern Africa. Jason, a Aerospace Battle Manager in the RAF took part in the gruelling Namibian Ultra Marathon, running 78 miles in 22 hours in 40 degree heat, dodging venomous snakes, raising £700 for Help for Heros in the process. Jason said “I was looking for something that was out of the ordinary and a challenge and this fitted the bill!” Jason is still a familiar face on the Sqn as a Service helper who assists at Squadron events through the year, although rarely in such heat!
