A Marathon a Week for a Year!
Phil Calvert doesn't do things by half - he is committed to running the equivilant of a marathon every week for 52 weeks - all in support of My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.
Here's what Phil has to say about his challenge: "I knew Doddie during my days in the front row at Watsonian FC back in the early 1990s, and then developed Pyloric Arthritis that stopped my playing career. I was told by a doctor that I would not walk properly again! I decided that wouldn't be the case and battered on to complete a New York marathon, 3 x 70.3 Ironman, 1 x Full 140.6 Ironman and several marathons, 1/2s and 10km."
"I decided that this year I would do my bit to raise a few pounds for the big guy. I asked Scott Hastings how I would go about it, he replied 'your mad!!!' (I know that) and here we are. This week I reach the 26th week - the half way point. With over 1118km completed. I have around £2k raised to date and am on target to raise £5200 by 31st Dec 18."
