Description

An injured Iraq war hero is today taking part in the North Pole Marathon. In temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees centigrade, it's not surprisingly dubbed the world's coolest marathon. Karl Hinett was only 18 when he received 37 per cent burns to his hands, legs, arms and face after his Warrior vehicle was fire-bombed. He began running marathons as part of his recovery and this challenge is just the latest in a long line of miles run.
