OC & rugby lover Phil Calvert has set himself a huge challenge: running 52 marathon distances of 42.195 kilometres every week for a year to raise money for charity!

This challenge will see him run the equivalent of Edinburgh to Gibraltar in 2018 and in the process he will be helping the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/5252mndoddie5; the Foundation was set-up by Doddie Weir, the ex-international and British & Irish Lions second-row, last year after he revealed he had Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

We wish Phil every success!
