Marcus Deglos | 35 | British
Marcus' first real adventure started with a bang in 1997, with a 6 week expedition to the Greenland glacier with the BSES.
In 2004, he ducked out of an IT career to go adventuring, and spent the next two and a bit years teaching all sorts of outdoor activities, from sailing to scuba-diving, kayaking to climbing…in 2007 he realised just how expensive the next level of outdoor kit would be, so went back to a proper job driving a desk in order to fund it. These days, Marcus mixes IT geekery with outdoor idiocy, and has no intention of stopping.
Marcus is also taking on the pioneering Icarus Trophy this year; racing a paramotor the length of the USA.
