Kenilworth marathon man just Â£3k away from charity target
A serial marathon runner from Kenilworth is just Â£3,000 away from his target of raising Â£100,000 for charity while completing 500 marathons.
David Phillips, 72, finished his 465th marathon in London on Sunday April 24 in a time of five hours 36 minutes.
David, who was running for the charity Brain and Spine Foundation, has now raised £97,000 of his £100,000 target thanks to the £12,000 raised during the marathon.
He was met by his fellow runners for the charity at a post-marathon party at the Hampshire Hotel in Leicester Square, which included the non-running team captain and former rugby star Brian Moore, as well as charity founder Peter Hamlyn.
