Nik has been running for 5 years and has raised hunreds of pounds for charities close to his heart including the British Heart Foundation. My passion is raising money for charities; the Olympics is not just about getting youth back into sport everyone can get involved. I have run 10ks Half Marathons for Cancer Research MS Society and MS Trust. This year I ran London (3:20) then five weeks later the Edinburgh Marathons (3:15) for the BHF no mean feat for a fifty-two year old. I joined Cleethorpes Athletics Club and have mentored other runners. I hope my late development will inspire other aged runners to take up athletics. To be part of the Olympics would be a dream come true. who would have thought an old fellow such as me who is running the best he ever has would be involved in the Olympics. it is unreal but it would really make me proud to carry the Olympic flame.
