FOR a man who had just run more than 100 miles in three days, Clive Evans was in remarkably good shape.

The Cardigan builder set off from Cardiff Castle on Friday (May 3) and arrived back in Cardigan on Sunday to raise money for Cardigan Cancer Care and Cardigan Swimming Pool.

Clive covered 35 miles on the first section, 39 miles on the second day and ‘only’ 29 miles to finish his gruelling feat as he looks to raise £2,000.

“To be honest I am not feeling too bad, just a bit achy today,” said Clive on Monday.

“I had been nursing a bit of a sore knee beforehand but I had a good physio and just got on with it. I had good nutrition and I have to say I quite enjoyed it.

“In the past when I have run marathons I have had my head down and I’ve been bent over but this time that was not the case.

“I had put in the training in the build-up and you get out of it what you put in.”

In 2017, along with three other members of Cardigan Running Club, Clive successfully completed the gruelling 56-mile Comrades Marathon in South Africa in scorching temperatures.

He also raised £3,500 for Cardigan Cancer Care, Autism Pembrokeshire and Pembrokeshire Blind Society after a 39.1-mile run from Aberystwyth RFC to Cardigan RFC.

And this year, as well as his 100-mile challenge, he is looking to compete in two Ironman events – the Nottingham Outlaw and Tenby events.
