THE GOLDEN AGE

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

It was a real plea­sure to see an ar­ti­cle about older run­ners (RW, June). I had no idea just how good some golden oldies are. I took up run­ning in my 60s and ran a 5:00:01 marathon at 71 years of age – one sec­ond too slow for a ‘good for age!’ I’m 78 now and would like to have a go at beat­ing 5:30. Have you thought about hav­ing an oc­ca­sional col­umn for us older run­ners? Tony Davies, Cringle­ford, Nor­folk

Tony with his 2010 Lon­don Marathon medal. And he’s still chal­leng­ing him­self.
