Steve Ed­wards has 700 sub-3:00 marathon fin­ishes…so far

AF­TER HIS first marathon, which he ran when he was 18, Steve Ed­wards vowed ‘never again.’ He spoke far too soon. He has now com­pleted 780 26.2 mil­ers and in April, on fin­ish­ing the Lon­don Marathon in 3:14:40, be­came the first per­son to achieve 700 of­fi­cial sub-3.30 times. Steve now hopes to nab the record for 800 marathons in the fastest av­er­age fin­ish time, at the Birm­ing­ham In­ter­na­tional Marathon in Oc­to­ber. ‘I can’t imag­ine a time when I’ll stop pur­su­ing th­ese records,’ he says.
