Random star of the day 5
The idea of this mini series was to give a mention to a few people who might not otherwise get recognised. I said at the start of the week that I can not even think of writing about everyone who deserves a mention.
I wrote about this person before the walk last year when he returned to finish the walk he started 50 years earlier!
He received loads of media coverage last year for finishing the course last year at the age of 72.
But you cannot ignore him this year either.
Since the last Parish Walk he has finished the London Marathon. Nothing special about that? Except that he is one of only 18 who have run every single London Marathon since 1981. He walks rather than runs now.
And he covered the 85 miles of the parishes in 1 hour and 41 minutes faster than last year. 21:21:51 at the age of 73.
Dave Fereday is the random hero of the day.
