Gethin is a man of many talents, though he’s so modest you could go years without discovering all his skills. Did you know he was the fastest Midnight Runner round the London Marathon course in 2017? And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, he did it backwards, in the middle of the night, with no cheering crowds. Incredible! Among his other accomplishments Geth’s a former county chess champion and knows how to ring church bells. Ding dong!
It didn’t take long for Geth to make a big impact on our community. One of his earliest events was Midnight2Midnight 2016, where we got our first glimpse of his boundless energy. Since then Geth has continued bringing his infectious enthusiasm and winning smile to all our events - he rarely misses a Tuesday or Sunday run, although you may find you only see him from behind. Geth is a speed demon, and you’ll invariably find him right at the front, leading the way and motivating our quickest runners to push themselves to the limit.
That was vital during Midnight2Midnight 2017 when Geth led 3 of our loops. Oh, and casually completed another 7 just for good measure. 100k in total - Geth, you are an inspiration.
2018 is going to be a big year for this chess-playing, bell-ringing superstar. Geth will be tackling 6 marathons in 6 months and scaling Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for charity. Gethin - you’re a true gent and a great friend, and we’ll be behind you every step of the way.
