Gazette Series: Yate marathon man Clive Daniels Yate marathon man Clive Daniels

MARATHON man Clive Daniels has handed over more than £15,000 to charity after completing yet another arduous run.

At 68, Clive, from Yate, is no stranger to challenges having taken part in marathons and half-marathons for 16 years in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

And his latest run, the Bristol Half Marathon in September, was no different as he completed the 13 miles in two hours and nine minutes.

Clive raised a total of £15,050 in sponsorship, which he handed over to Macmillan this week.

He told the Gazette: “It takes my total to just under £175,000 for Macmillan and altogether with earlier sponsorship I have raised £196,000.

“I shall no doubt run the half marathon again next year and hopefully I will iigo over the £200,000 mark.”

Clive, of The Glen, said although training was becoming tougher as he got older he wasn’t ready to hang up his running shoes just yet.

“I feel fine and I still enjoy it,” he said. “Training is a little bit harder these days but as long as I still enjoy it I will carry on and it is nice to have a little target in mind.”
