A serial marathon runner from Kenilworth is just £3,000 away from his target of raising £100,000 for charity while completing 500 marathons.

David Phillips, 72, finished his 465th marathon in London on Sunday April 24 in a time of five hours 36 minutes.

David, who was running for the charity Brain and Spine Foundation, has now raised £97,000 of his £100,000 target thanks to the £12,000 raised during the marathon.

He was met by his fellow runners for the charity at a post-marathon party at the Hampshire Hotel in Leicester Square, which included the non-running team captain and former rugby star Brian Moore, as well as charity founder Peter Hamlyn.
