After running his first marathon at the age of 18 in 1981, Steve has gone on to run over 800 official marathon races in an average finish time of 3hrs 18min 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, 700 and more recently 800 marathons in the fastest average finish times.
At the time of writing, he’s run over 320 sub 3:15s the most by any British person. He’s also run close to 500 sub 3:20’s and over 720 sub 3:30s, both of which are world best totals. He achieved the new landmark 800 marathons record at the Birmingham international event in October 2017 but ultimately is attempting to achieve a new 1000 marathons record 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.
