We usually consider the running of
a successful company to be a great achievement, and so
it is. This however, is the story of a man who did all
that, and then went on to even greater things.
His achievements during retirement,
a time when most people relax, are legendary. He became
the country’s oldest marathon runner and a great
inspiration to many aspiring elderly athletes.
He battled many of the rigours of
old age and kept on running, nearly to the end. He is an
example to us all, and showed what can be done with a
lot of courage, grit and determination.
He was a wonderful ambassador for
the city, and must be included in any list of great
Wulfrunians from modern times.
