Dave Phillips, captain Massey Fergusson runners, Coventry, writes………
Just a quick note that after last weekend’s Watford half marathon I became the 1st UK runner to have run 400 full marathons and 300 half marathons (now 420 and 300). Watford was my 300th half. Ran it with Massey colleagues in 2:28 despite an awful hip injury, but needs must. How do I know? Well I know everyone who has done over 400 full marathons and not one has done that many halves and the 100 Marathon Club and Runners World have confirmed it.
1st half was way back in 1982 so it’s been a long road but with £55k also raised for charity in London marathons, who cares?
I seem to be the “hundred man” as I also played 400 times as hooker for Kenilworth 1st XV.

Sport & Exercise at the QE
I’m writing to let you know about a new NHS Sports Medicine Clinic in Birmingham. This is free for anyone, and just needs a referral from your GP. The flyer is attached and I would be grateful if you could forward this to everyone in your Athletics Club, and put the leaflet in your club house.
I appreciate Birmingham might be a long way for some people, although some athletes have come from Scotland and Cornwall!
Nevertheless, this is why I’ve started a campaign for better services for sports people in the NHS. As you know, injury can be the ruin of many an aspiring athlete, so it’s essential that we have good services to serve the needs of grassroots sport. With the memories of London 2012 still fresh in everyone’s mind, there seems to be a renewed interest in increasing sports participation in the UK, but without medical services to support British sport, many young athletes will leave Track & Field following an injury. If you believe in this please sign my petition to get parliament to discuss this:-
Many thanks and wishing you the best sporting success in the years ahead,
