Paul Galt to take on 10 Marathons in 10 Days

Thanet Roadrunner Paul Galt is undertaking the mammoth task of running ten marathons in 10 days.  He is running this athletic challenge as part of the Saxon Shore Seaside Series which is organised by Saxon, Vikings and Normans Marathons.

From 24th November to 3rd December 2017, Paul will be running ten consecutive marathons at various locations around Kent including Deal, Samphire Hoe, and Margate. It will be a tough challenge, mentally and physically to do all ten, but we know that if anyone can do it, Paul can. 

Paul is married and has four children.  Having served as a soldier for five years, Paul now works as a chef.

Paul started running again about four years ago.  He said, ’I had put on weight and was very unfit, so I needed to make a change.   So I took up running and eventually progressed to marathon running, running a couple of marathons over the first two years.  However last year, I caught the marathon bug and ran ten marathons.  This year I have run 31 marathons, and by the end of the year, I would have run 43.

He added, ‘I just love this distance.  It challenges you in so many different ways.  I thank my wife for being so supportive…without her; I could not achieve so much.’

Everyone at the club wishes Paul every success with this enormous challenge.
