“If only you knew, the power of the Garside…” – Darth Vader (1980)

As some of you will have seen on social media John Garside recently completed 12 marathons in 12 months. Having ran throughout 2019 John ran…

Charles Darwin (Shrewsbury)
Ground Hog Day (Telford – Around a 400m Running Track!!)
Boston (UK!!)
Milton Keynes
Lakeland Trails Ultra
San Francisco
Bath Two Tunnels
Loch Ness
November Nightmare (Telford)
Portsmouth Coastal

Technically it is 15 in 15 months he also did marathons in Oct, Nov and Dec 2018:

The Pumpkin (Telford)
Nottingham Christmas Marathon

John says:

“It was a target for this year as a milestone age for me this year! I struggled a bit from the summer onwards with my knee – seemed ok yesterday though despite all the mud! So fingers crossed for 2020. I will definitely be running marathons next year again although not 12 will give the summer ones a miss. In total I have done 29 now. Hopefully Gloucester in January .”

Congratulations to John. Strong, with this one, the Force is.
