Phil’s Manchester Marathon
October 10 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Hi Everyone, I am running the Manchester Marathon on Sunday 10th October 2021 and its my first ever Marathon!
I grew up in Cleveleys, however have lived away from the area in the main since moving off to University at 18 (back in 2005 which seems a long time ago!). Ive been very fortunate and had great opportunities along the way with fantastic supportive parents, however I know that unfortunately isnt the case for every family.
Personally, I have a young family now with a 4 year old and soon to be 2 year old. Around a year and a half ago I was heavily over-weight myself and not really setting the best example to my children around being fit, healthy and active. Hence I sat about on a personal journey which has meant I have lost 6 stone and now have a good shot at completing the marathon in six weeks time now.
I am really keen to see the money go back into the area I grew up where I know so many struggle.
