City entrepreneur and elite runner Steve Partridge has run more than 150 miles across the Sahara under a pummelling African sun with the aim of raising £1 million for west London charity Small Steps School for Children that supports kids with cerebral palsy or sensory or motor impairment.

Extreme marathon runner Steve Partridge has outrun death.
Taking part in a non-stop 150 mile race in the Mauritanian Sahara Desert, the City entrepreneur woke to find he had been accidently left behind in the vast plains of the ‘empty-quarter’.
