Roddy Bio

Meet Roddy

I am married to my wife Lynn and we have three
lovely kids, Alasdair, Isla and Findlay.
I'm an ex international cyclist whose highlights throughout my racing career include 9th Commonwealth Games Road Race, 4th on GC twice Rás Tour of Ireland and breaking Graeme O'Bree's Scottish Hour Record. 

When I retired from cycling I started running and won the Highland Cross and did a few marathons with my best being London in 2.44.

In 2008 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 40. Not knowing much about the condition I decided to do the Marathon Des Sables through the Sahara desert to raise awareness and money to help find a cure for type 1 which I raised 26K for two diabetes charities.

After the MDS I attempted to do the 350 miles 6633 Arctic Ultra Marathon in the Yukon in North Canada failing and pulling out 270 miles into the race. I decided to return one year later to try and finish unfinished business which I managed to finish in 2nd place with the 6th fastest time in the races history.
