Steve Edwards aiming for 700th sub 3.30 at London

by Press Release
Tuesday 18th April 2017
Running a sub 3.30 marathon is a feat many runners would be happy with. Running 700 marathons is an amazing achievement very few people have ever achieved. Steve Edwards is closing in on his 700th sub 3.30 marathon.   
Steve, from the Cotswold town of Moreton-in-Marsh, is hoping to establish a new landmark world record at this year’s London Marathon  by becoming the first person in the world to run 700 official marathon races all inside 3hrs 30min.
Since running his first marathon back in the 80s and vowing to never do it again, the 54 year old athlete has achieved many extreme multi marathon records including setting the fastest average finish time to run 500, 600 and 700 official marathon races. This will be Steve's 22nd London marathon appearance and if all goes to plan his 700th sub 3:30  which will further improve his record for running 700 marathons in the fastest average finish time.
Steve's ultimate ambition is to set a new record for running 1000 marathons in the fastest average finish time. His current total is 777 with an average of 3hrs 17min which spans the last 29 years and equates to one every 13 days.
Good luck Steve!
