• Q) For members who don’t know you, tell us a bit about yourself?
    A) I’m a middle aged man with a bad addiction. I don’t think of my self as a runner as I’m not quick. Last year I completed my first challenge of 52 marathons in 52 weeks and ended up doing 57 in the 52 weeks. I’m now looking at the longer distances. I must admit I was asked 4 years ago if I would do longer distances and I just laughed at them, who’s laughing now!

    Q) How and when did you get into running?
    A) I started running in 2012 to run the London marathon, I had no intention of running after that.
    Q) What do you enjoy most about being a member of Sandhurst Joggers?
    A) There are 2 things that make SJ the best club in the world first is its great members there is always someone free for a run, advice and a hug when needed. And second the great variety of runs times and locations.
    Q) On which of the weekly runs are we most likely to bump into you?
    A) Unfortunately due to the challenge I’ve been on over the last couple of years I’ve not been out much with the club, but Tuesday and Sunday.
    Q) I see you’ve run 91 of your Parkruns at Frimley Lodge – what do you enjoy most about running at this venue?
    A) Frimley is only 3 miles away so I can use it as part of my training running there and back, plus so many other SJers there so always good company.
    Q) Of the other seven venues (including one overseas) you’ve run at which is your favourite and why?
    A) Paris it’s a great figure of eigth course, it only had 150 runners on the day I did it and that was up by 130 due to the marathon on the following day.
    Q) What other events are on your programme for the remainder o 2017 and 2018?
    A) I just have the little run booked in April my 100th marathon which is the most amazing thing I have ever done, apart from joining Sandhurst Joggers. (I would not be where I am today without the club) I have eigth other marathons booked plus 1x 40, 1x 50 and 1x 100 milers booked so another busy year to come!
