View Full Version : Menelaus up to his old tricks...

Craig Colclough ingratiated himself on this forum as "Chasing the Aurora" with a fraudulant attempt to single-handedly walk to the north pole for charity. He made various claims about his military background and was found out. He fell off the CUK radar for a while before re-registering as Menelaus and changing his name by deed poll. When he was sentenced to serve time in prison I deduced that Menelaus and Chasing-the-Aurora were one and the same.

It appears that Craig rather than learning his lesson has created a new persona and supposedly run 10k for a charity that has no record of him registering.

I have never had contact with his ex-wife and no desire to do so.


Race number : 19129
Registered under the usual name : John Christiansen
Links to pics : Marathon Photos --- 2010 ASICS British 10k London Run (http://www.marathon-photos.com/scripts/event.py?event=Sports/CPUK/2010/ASICS%20British%2010k%20London%20Run&new_search=1&match=19129) (for anyone interested)

Looks like "Helen"/Georgina isn't too impressed.


Of course he has. The one fundamental aspect to Craig, is that he cannot cope with being alone. He needs to shine in someone else's eyes and craves the company. He'll be active on a string of dating web sites and web forums, he'll have a selection of women he's chatting to/has met up with, then go with whom ever he assesses to have the best chance of staying with him and believing him.

Otherwise he's left alone with his thoughts, and after everything he's done I probably wouldn't fancy that much either.

I know that hell hath no fury, but I think his ex-missus doth protest too much now and should just move on. I don't agree with what he's done in his past as some of it was tried and found to be illegal (therefore outside the boundary of what is acceptable in this society we are all part of) and nor would I take seriously any further posts he made here: but part of me hopes that by finishing the marathon (or whatever run it was) that he's made some money for a charity or good cause.

Good on that man for completing the race and reaching a goal; finally something you can be truely proud of.

He may not have been the full picnic but she just looks like a crazed loon herself flashing her "I married a loon and it is not my fault" tits to everyone.

Of course she seems to have spod in her fan club though.

Nope I posted his details to show that he's still up to the same old crap. Crap that I certainly had hoped he'd got out of his system.

He wasn't running a marathon, it was a London 10k. He was supposedly running for a charity that has no knowledge of his details under yet another false name.

But hey, you make your own mind up.

Craig Colclough ingratiated himself on this forum as "Chasing the Aurora" with a fraudulant attempt to single-handedly walk to the north pole for charity. He made various claims about his military background and was found out. He fell off the CUK radar for a while before re-registering as Menelaus and changing his name by deed poll. When he was sentenced to serve time in prison I deduced that Menelaus and Chasing-the-Aurora were one and the same.

It appears that Craig rather than learning his lesson has created a new persona and supposedly run 10k for a charity that has no record of him registering.

I have never had contact with his ex-wife and no desire to do so.

IMO, Helen/Georgina loves it. It has added some excitement to her life, the whole experience she had and her continued following of the story.

What she's also saying, is that she is/was stupid enough to be the one he selected as being "the one likely to believe his stories". For goodness sake, she married him didn't she?

I'm being harsh.She found and posted on this forum she didn't she, she's just as bad. Her evaluation of his character might be right, but I thihnk she craves excitement too, hence how the daft mare fell for it in the first place. Probably self-centred too, and she seems to want to be a part of this contuinued story in one way or another (ie such as posting here, and again commenting on his latest exploits where ever the text from the beginning of this message thread was quoted from). Wouldn't be surprised if she was still married to him, if it wasn;t for the other women :)

He's on Twitter as well, under multiple IDs. I noticed some conversation being RT'ed about something that looked familiar with previous stories about him on CUK. I asked that person if she knew who he was and said she'd met him for lunch - turns out he'd fed her all the same lines; Gulf War vet, pilot etc.
