After running his first marathon at the age of 18 in 1981, Steve has gone on to run over 750 official marathon races in an average finish time of 3hrs 16min which makes him one of the most successful multi marathon runners in the world today. Known by many in the UK running community as ‘The Godfather of Marathon Running’, Steve has set many world landmark records including running 500, 600 and 700 marathons in the fastest average finish time.
At the time of writing, he’s run over 300 sub 3:15s the most by any British person. He’s also run close to 500 sub 3:20’s and 700 sub 3:30s, both of which are world best totals. All being well, he hopes to set a new landmark 800 marathons record at the Birmingham international event in October 2017 and ultimately attempt to reach a record 1000 marathons averaging sub 3:20 by his 60th birthday.
His biography ‘The Man Inside The Machine’ is now available with 10% of all proceeds being donated to his favourite local charity in Gloucestershire, Kates Home Nursing.
