You probably recognise the name, Marcus Smith…
A Dubai resident, entrepreneur and athlete, this time last year he was running 30 marathons in 30 days. The feat garnered him national media attention, so-much-so in fact, HH Sheikh Hamdan, Crown Prince of Dubai joined him for part of the run and footage of Marcus running was played on the Burj Khalifa (erm, HOW cool is that?!).
But his journey, both the struggles and achievements started long before this. With Marcus having already completed the Marathon De Sables, arguably one of the world’s toughest endurance races and overcoming a road-accident that saw him battling for his life.

Marcus Smith's name is famous in Dubai thanks to running 30 marathons in 30 days last year. But that's just the tip of the iceberg for his fitness achievements. Marcus joined the Lovin Show to talk about completing the legendary Marathon de Sables (an 156 miles endurance challenge through the Sahara desert) to the time he was hit by a truck, left with seven broken ribs, a collapsed lung, 80km for the nearest hospital.
