Chris Moon challenged the concept of limitation by completing the London Marathon a year after losing an arm and a leg.
Chris Moon walks the talk. He’s survived kidnap, the threat of execution, being blown up, losing his limbs and most of his blood. He ran a marathon less than a year after leaving hospital, tested artificial limbs to new limits, run most of the world’s toughest ultra distance races, climbed mountains, crossed countries on foot, written books and most importantly used his experience to understand and illustrate the process of achievement.
This former Army officer with operational experience who worked for a charity clearing landmines in Asia and Africa is one of the few westerners to have survived kidnap by the Khmer Rouge guerillas in Cambodia. Two years later after that ordeal Chris was blown up in a remote minefield in East Africa. He was walking in a supposedly cleared area in Mozambique in 1995 when the blast resulted in the loss of his lower right arm and leg. Doctors say he survived against the odds due to his determination and fitness.
The fact that within a year of leaving hospital he successfully completed the London Marathon and a Masters Degree in Security Management is testament to Chris’ attitude and strength in adversity.
Chris has gone on to complete numerous marathons and many of the world’s toughest ultra marathons including the Great Sahara Run and Badwater the 135-mile continuous ultra through Death Valley to the mountains. He’s taken parties to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and run the length of Cambodia to raise funds for charities assisting the disabled. His numerous media appearances include The Parkinson Show and his autobiography, One Step Beyond is published by Macmillian.
Chris speaks with humour and passion and his bespoke presentations have inspired people around the world. He is one of the most inspiring and highly sought after speakers in Europe. “Inspiring and motivational – ten out of ten” – Xerox
Chris relates his experience of being abducted and taken prisoner and says the most important thing he learnt is: “Never assume the role of the victim.”
Chris has experience of working in high risk environments and a Masters in Security Management. He’s presented to large utility and oil companies on the mindsets around health and safety and security and makes what is sometimes thought to be a dry subject uplifting, humorous and relevant. Chris also presents on the personal mindsets of excellent leadership and has worked with large blue chip companies and government departments.
