See the historic moment when Alex Flynn, the British ultra-endurance athlete, completed his ’10 Million Metres’ challenge.

Alex, 42, set himself a mission to raise £1million for Parkinson’s research by running, cycling, climbing and kayaking a total of 10 million metres – all in competitive races.

He completed the incredible challenge last week after crossing the line of the 26.2-mile Dubai Marathon.

The video below, courtesy of Lloyd Bell Productions, shows pre-and post Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon interviews with Alex and unique footage of him crossing the finish line to completing his epic challenge, which took him around the planet and racing over 6,214 miles (10,000 kilometres) in four years.

Alex, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2008, is now preparing for his next challenge – rowing across the Pacific with fellow Brit, Darren Taylor. For more information visit or
