The Great South Run will take place around Portsmouth and the participants will be running for a distance of 10 miles. Philip says, “If I make it in under two hours, I’ll be delirious.

He’ll be raising funds to tackle meningitis – a disease that causes around 300 deaths in the UK every year – many of them in the under-fives. Philip also has a personal reason for running for MRF, ‘It’s the thirtieth anniversary of losing my son Aiden to meningitis when he was just three years old.’
